For six decades, Sidney Sheldon has spun yarns and stories to the delight of America. First as a screenwriter working in the studio system, then as the creator of popular TV series, and, finally, as an internationally-published best-selling novelist, Sheldon could never be called high brow, but he entertained the multitudes and masses. His credits run from the Cary Grant/Shirley Temple breezy comedy "The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer" (1947), for which he won an Oscar, to "I Dream of Jeannie" and "Hart to Hart" on TV to numerous novels. Sheldon can also boast that every novel he has written has been adapted for the big or small screen. His stage credits co-writing the Tony-winning libretto for Gwen Verdon's signature Broadway musical "Redhead" (1959).
