Biography:Joseph Leo Mankiewicz (February 11, 1909-February 5, 1993) was a Polish-American Hollywood screenwriter, director and producer.

Born in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania to Franz Mankiewicz (Polish-American) and Johanna Blumenau, Mankiewicz moved with his family to New York City where he graduated in 1924 from Stuyvesant High School. In 1928, he obtained a bachelor's degree from Columbia University. For a time he worked in Berlin, Germany as a foreign correspondent for the Chicago Tribune newspaper before being lured into the motion picture business.

During his long career in Hollywood, Mankiewicz wrote forty-eight screenplays, including All About Eve, for which he won an Academy Award. He also produced more than twenty films including The Philadelphia Story which was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1941. However, he is best known for the films he directed, twice winning the Academy Award for Directing.
