Friends, family honor Gelbart

Tribute to writer set for Dec. 10

Family members and friends of Larry Gelbart will mount a tribute to the prolific scribe on Dec. 10 at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences’ Samuel Goldwyn Theater.

Gelbart, who died in September at the age of 81, had a career that spanned more than a half a century in TV, film and legit. He was best known for developing the smallscreen adaptation of “MASH” and for penning such screenplays as “Oh God” and “Tootsie.”

He wrote the book for the Broadway hit “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” and in his later years Gelbart wrote and produced such critically embraced HBO telepics as “Barbarians at the Gate” and “Weapons of Mass Destraction.”

The tribute, which is expected to draw a range of notables who worked with Gelbart over the years, will begin at 7 p.m. To RSVP, emailLarryGelbartTribute@gmail.com.
