Who was Jerome Cady?

Jerome Cady was a Hollywood screenwriter.

What promised to be a lucrative and successful career as a film writer - graduating up from Charlie Chan movies in the late 30s to such well respected war films as Guadalcanal Diary, a successful adaptation of Forever Amber and the police procedural Call Northside 777 - came to an abrupt end when he died of a sleeping pill overdose onboard his yacht off Catalina Island in 1948.

Cady received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay for Wing and a Prayer in 1944.
