Actress/screenwriter Valerie Curtin began her acting career on the New York stage, making her film bow as Vera in 1975's Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore. Seldom rising above the supporting-player ranks, Curtin has been more artistically satisfied by her scriptwriting work, winning an Oscar nomination for 1979's ...And Justice For All. This project, like many others, was a collaborative effort between Curtin and her director/writer husband Barry Levinson. Valerie Curtin's TV work has included a season as a regular on the comedy variety series The Jim Stafford Show (1975), and the regular role of Judy Bernley on the 1982 sitcom version of the feature film 9 to 5 (the same role played by Jane Fonda in the original movie). Curtin is the daughter of Joseph Curtin, a radio actor best known for his portrayal of Nick Charles on The Adventures of the Thin Man and of Peter Galway on the daytime serial Our Gal Sunday. She is also the cousin of Saturday Night Live veteran Jane Curtin.
