Biography

​From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.  

Richard Sale, (17 December 1911, New York – 4 March 1993, Los Angeles) was an American screenwriter and film director. He started his career writing for the pulps in the Thirties, appearing regularly in Detective Fiction Weekly (with the Daffy Dill series), Argosy, Double Detective, and a number of other magazines. In the Forties, he graduated to slick publications like The Country Gentleman and The Saturday Evening Post. In the mid-Forties, he made a career change from writing magazine fiction to screenplays. A big boost to Sale's success was his novel Not Too Narrow...Not Too Deep, filmed as Strange Cargo (1940) starring Joan Crawford and Clark Gable. He directed several films, including A Ticket to Tomahawk (1950), Meet Me After the Show (1951) with Betty Grable, Let's Make It Legal (1951) with one of Marilyn Monroe's earliest film appearances, Suddenly (1954), Malaga (1954), and Gentlemen Marry Brunettes (1955) with Jane Russell. He also authored many screenplays, The French Line (1954) and Gentlemen Marry Brunettes, both with Mary Loos, The Oscar (1966) and Assassination (1987) Together with his wife, they created the TV series Yancy Derringer.
