Former actor and journalist who began writing screenplays in the 1930s and worked as executive producer of MGM's B productions (1941-43), producer for David O. Selznick (1943-47), executive vice president of production for RKO (1947-48) and, most notably, chief of production at MGM (1948-1956). Schary was unable to save MGM from its TV-induced decline in the 1950s and, after being ousted from the company, wrote plays and made occasional, independent films.
