    However, Viertel identified more with Southern California youth culture than with the European millieu he was exposed to by his family. "The physical aspect of European intellectuals was so totally different from what an American kid wants to be," he told the International Herald Tribune in 1992. "I knew Bert Brecht was close to being a genius, but he was a funny-looking man to me."

  • 1990
    Age 69
    Viertel was best known for his novel White Hunter Black Heart, which was made into a film starring Clint Eastwood in 1990.
    More Details Hide Details It is a thinly-disguised account of Viertel's experiences working with film director John Huston while they were making The African Queen. The central character is scriptwriter Pete Verrill while the Huston character is called John Wilson. Viertel's opinion of the finished film was tempered by his idea that Huston himself would have preferred a portrayal with more sarcasm. Viertel's looks and personality were an inspiration for Robert Redford's character Hubbell Gardiner in The Way We Were. Of his screenwriting work for Hollywood productions, Viertel said that it was primarily a vehicle for income so that he could continue to write novels. Though he worked closely with movie professionals that he liked such as Billy Wilder and Huston, Viertel said there was always creative tension. Viertel was twice married. His first wife was Virginia Ray "Jigee" Schulberg, the ex-wife of the novelist and screenwriter Budd Schulberg; she was pregnant with their only child, Christine, when Viertel abandoned her to live with the fashion model Simone Micheline Bodin known professionally as Bettina. His second wife was the actress Deborah Kerr (from 23 July 1960 until Kerr's death on 16 October 2007); by her, he had two stepdaughters, Melanie and Francesca Bartley. He died nineteen days after Deborah in Marbella, Spain; the cause was lymphoma. He was 12 days shy of his 87th birthday.
