William Norton

23 September 1925 to 30 September 2010

A screenwriter whose turbulent life seemed every bit as dramatic as anything he ever penned for the screen, Norton came to notice with the Burt Lancaster-Ossie Davis western The Scalphunters (1968). His other films include Sam Whiskey (1968), The McKenzie Break (1970), White Lightning (1973), Brannigan (1975) and Gator (1976).
