Ben Maddow was a prolific screenwriter and documentarian from the 1930s through the 70s. Educated at Columbia University, Maddow began his career working within the American documentary movement in the 30s. He earned his first feature screenplay credit with Framed 1947. Other screenplays include Clarence Brown's Intruder in the Dust, John Huston's The Asphalt Jungle, God's Little Acre, and, again with Huston, an Edgar Award for Best Mystery Screenplay and The Unforgiven 1960. As a documentarian he directed and wrote such films as Storm of Strangers, The Stairs, and The Savage Eye 1959, which won the BAFTA Flaherty Documentary Award. Maddow made his solo feature directorial debut with the striking, offbeat feature An Affair of the Skin 1963, a well acted story of several loves and friendships gone sour and marked by the rich characterisations which had distinguished his best screenplays. His final screenplay was for the horror melodrama The Mephisto Waltz 1970.
