Gore Vidal
Birth: Oct. 3, 1925
Death: Jul. 31, 2012
Los Angeles
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Author, Screenwriter and Playwright. Born Eugene Luther Gore Vidal, he is known for writing the screenplays of acclaimed films, including "Suddenly, Last Summer" by Joseph L. Mankiewicz and Ben Hur by William Wyler. After the Second World War, he lived for a long time in Italy, where he also acted in films by Federico Fellini. The literary critics consider "The City and the Pillar" (1948) and "Myra Breckinridge" his most polemica novels against the social conformism. However, he has written and published numerous works, including "Williwaw", "Burr", "Live from Golgotha: The Gospel According to Gore Vidal", and the essays, "Reflections Upon a Sinking Ship", "The Second American Revolution", "Decline and Fall of the American Empire" and "Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace or How We Came To Be So Hated". Returning to the U.S. after the death of his dear friend Howard Auster, he lived at his home in Los Angeles, California, where he passed away due to pneumonia. (bio by: Lucy Caldarelli)
