Lem Dobbs

Lem Dobbs (born Anton Lemuel Kitaj on 24 December 1959 in Oxford, England) is a British-American screenwriter, best known for the film The Limey. He is the son of the late painter, R.B. Kitaj. The nom de plume "Dobbs" was taken from the character played by Humphrey Bogart in The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.

In 1979, Dobbs wrote an original screenplay entitled Edward Ford which garnered a great deal of praise; it remains unproduced as of December 2010. On the basis of another unproduced screenplay, The Marvel of the Haunted Castle, Dobbs was hired to re-write Diane Thomas' screenplay Romancing the Stone, though his contributions went uncredited. Following that film's success, several films based on Dobbs' screenplays saw the light of day: Hider in the House, The Hard Way, Kafka (which Dobbs wrote in the 1970s), and The Limey. He was also credited as co-writer on both Dark City and The Score.

Dobbs' latest produced credit is Haywire, an action-thriller, directed again by Steven Soderbergh (director of both Kafka and The Limey). It is scheduled for release in early 2011.

Dobbs has spoken on DVD commentary tracks for his films Dark City and The Limey, and (as a film historian) for the unrelated The Sand Pebbles, Von Ryan's Express, and Double Indemnity (this last due to his personal friendship with the late director Billy Wilder).
