Deaths Elsewhere

March 01, 2003

Daniel Taradash, 90, who won an Oscar for his screenplay adaptation of James Jones' best-selling novel From Here to Eternity, died of cancer Feb. 22 at a Los Angeles hospital.

Best known for adapting sprawling novels and Broadway plays, Taradash's screenwriting credits include writing or co-writing adaptations of Clifford Odets' Golden Boy, William Inge's Picnic and James Michener's Hawaii.

But From Here to Eternity, the 1953 film version of Jones' novel about Army life in Hawaii during the months leading up to the attack on Pearl Harbor, was the one movie for which Taradash said he received the most compliments.
