Raphael Blau (1912–1996)

Mr. Blau was a noted Hollywood screenwriter. He collaborated on the story and script for the comic film Bedtime for Bonzo (1951) with his brother-in-law Ted Berkman. However, the two only got credit for the story and not for the screenplay. They later collaborated on a number of other films in the 1950's. See full bio »
