Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Powerful associate and then executive producer with a good eye for intelligent, popular material. Schneider was the associate producer of fine films, with his brother Bert, of the late 60s and 70s, mostly talky, smart-as-hell paeans to societal estrangement, usually projects of Bob Rafelson and/or Jack Nicholson. With Bert executive producing, Schneider managed "Head" (1968) and associate produced "Five Easy Pieces" (1970) and "The Last Picture Show" (1971). Schneider started producing independently with Bob Rafaelson's "Stay Hungry" (1975). He co-produced the Jack Nicholson directorial efforts, "Goin' South" (1978) and "The Two Jakes" (1992), and performed similar duties on Terrence Malick's much-praised "Days of Heaven" (1978). In addition, Schneider is responsible for the box-office success "War Games" (1983) and the Rafelson's "Black Widow" (1987). His final co-producing effort was Danny De Vito's critically maligned "Hoffa" (1992), a film which, as with most of his other collaborations, involved Jack Nicholson. His one TV credit was as co-producer of ABC afterschool special, "The Toothpaste Millionaire" (1974).
