UCLA to honor Davis, Carroll Jr., Lehman

Scribes honored during Screenwriting Showcase for lifetime achievements

Ernest Lehman, Bob Carroll Jr. and Madelyn Pugh Davis will become this year’s UCLA School of Theater Film and Television’s lifetime achievers on Monday, during the school’s yearend Screenwriting Showcase.

Lehman, who penned such prominent features as “The King and I,” “North by Northwest” and “West Side Story,” has garnered two Academy Award nominations as producer of “Hello Dolly!” and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf,” both of which he adapted for the bigscreen.

Davis and Carroll together wrote all 180 episodes of “I Love Lucy.”

Showcase, which will also feature excerpts from five student screenplays, will be hosted by screenwriter and program alum Mike Werb (“The Mask,” “Face/Off”).

UCLA’s Screenwriting Showcase, now in its seventh year, is part of the School of Theater, Film and Television’s Festival 2000, a weeklong celebration of student work.
