He also produced the superior western Garden of Evil (1954), the historical drama The Virgin Queen (1955) and the lavish musical King and I, The (1956).


With Walter Reisch, he co-wrote the screenplays for Niagara (1953) and Titanic (1953), winning his third Oscar for the latter.


Despite having very different personalities and arguing incessantly -- Wilder being the more extroverted and cynical, while Bracket was, to quote Gloria Swanson, 'quieter, more refined' -- their collaboration endured until 1951, spanning fourteen motion pictures.


Brackett remained at the studio until 1950, doubling up as producer from 1945. During his tenure at Paramount, Brackett became part of one of the most celebrated screenwriting partnerships in the motion picture business, alongside Billy Wilder. They were eventually dubbed by Life Magazine as "the happiest couple in Hollywood".

The culmination of their efforts was Sunset Boulevard (1950), which won an Academy Award for Best Writing, Story and Screenplay. Following this, the team split up at the peak of their success, each going their separate ways. Brackett moved on to work under contract at 20th Century Fox for the next eight years.


President of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences from 1949-55.


Many of their most popular hits, such as Ninotchka (1939), Ball of Fire (1941) and The Lost Weekend (1945), were noted for their intricate scripting and witty, sardonic dialogue.


Wrote or contributed to the screenplay of six Best Picture Oscar nominees: Little Women (1933), Ninotchka (1939), Hold Back the Dawn (1941), The Lost Weekend (1945), The Bishop's Wife (1947) and Sunset Boulevard (1950). The Lost Weekend was the only one which won Best Picture.


In 1932, Brackett left for Hollywood as a screenwriter. He was signed by Paramount primarily on the strength of his novel "Week-End".


He practised law for several years, before commencing work as drama critic for The New Yorker (1925-29), in addition to submitting short stories to The Saturday Evening Post.


Charles Brackett, born in Saratoga Springs, New York, of Scottish ancestry, followed in his attorney-father's footsteps and graduated with a law degree from Harvard University in 1920.
