Norman Krasna, 1909-1984

Today marks 100 years since the birth of Norman Krasna. You might not recognize the name, since most of his work in Hollywood was as a screenwriter. The movie with which I immediately identify him is The Devil and Miss Jones, which Krasna also co-produced. However, he had a pretty substantial list of movie credits, many of which I didn't know about, from the holiday classic White Christmas, to Spencer Tracy's Fury. Coming up this coming week on TCM will also be one of Krasna's last movies, Sunday in New York.
