Nationality: American


Douglas Brode is a novelist, graphic novelist, produced playwright, Hollywood screenwriter, film and TV historian, and multi-award-winning journalist. Born and raised on Long Island, he traveled upstate to attend SUNY Geneseo as an undergrad and never really left. After graduate work in Shakespearean studies at Syracuse University, he and his wife Sue (Johnson) Brode stayed on and raised a family. Brode became the coordinator of the Cinema Studies program at Onondaga College, and then an adjunct professor at Syracuse University's Newhouse School of Public Communications.

His more than thirty-five published books include the novel Sweet Prince, a retelling of the Hamlet legend, and Shakespeare in the Movies for Oxford University Press. He and Carol Kramer Serling collaborated on Rod Serling and the Twilight Zone, the only official analysis of that late author's work and vision. Among Brode's best known books are studies of the careers of directors Steven Spielberg and Woody Allen, such genres as the gangster film and the Western, and the relationship of popular culture to contemporary politics. Brode's op-ed pieces are regularly syndicated to newspapers across the country.

During the course of his lifetime, Brode has been employed as a TV talk show host, radio commentator, drama and film critic, regional theatre actor, and magazine editor. As an educator, Brode teaches at the Newhouse School of Public Communications, Syracuse University, during the fall semester, and for the department of Philosophy and Classics, University of Texas at San Antonio, each spring.
