Tom Mankiewicz

Sad news.  A super screenwriter, Tom Mankiewicz, has died.  He wrote the screenplay for Eyewear's favourite Bond, Diamonds Are Forever, as well as Live and Let Die, and several others.  He also created and directed the kitsch classic TV series Hart to Hart.  Mankiewicz was related to the writers of Citizen Kane, and All About Eve, and as a script doctor became legendary in Hollywood, salvaging, for instance, Mario Puzo's Superman script.  He will be missed.
