Epstein, Julius J.

▪ 2001

      American screenwriter (b. Aug. 22, 1909, New York, N.Y.—d. Dec. 30, 2000, Los Angeles, Calif.), had a long career, most noted for the adaptation—in partnership with his twin brother, Philip, and others—of the unproduced play Everybody Comes to Rick's that became the screenplay for the film Casablanca (1942), for which its team of writers won an Academy Award. Following his brother's death (1952), he continued writing, garnering two more Oscar nominations and, in 1998, a Los Angeles Film Critics Association career achievement award.
