Description
Ivan Goff was an Oscar-nominated screenwriter who authored a number of successful movies from 1949-1960 with his writing partner, Ben Roberts. Goff and Roberts also wrote and produced several successful series for television in the 1960s and 1970s. The collection contains scripts and production notes from three television series in which Goff was involved as a writer or producer: Mannix, Nero Wolfe and The Rogues.
Background
Ivan Goff was born in Perth, Australia, on April 17, 1910. He began his career as a journalist for a local newspaper, but came to dislike the relative isolation of the country from the rest of the world. He eventually made his way to England where he worked several jobs while trying to break into journalism.
