Box, Muriel

Tagged: Author

(1905-1991) UK playwright, scriptwriter and director, often in collaboration with her husband, Sydney Box (1907-1983), who (because of the resistance to women directors) sometimes served as her beard; they shared an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for The Seventh Veil (1946). Her sf novel, The Big Switch (1964), is a Sleeper Awakes tale whose handsome male protagonist is revived into a world in which he is the only man (see Clichés; Sex). [JC]
