Marshall Brickman (born August 25, 1941 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) is an Academy Award winning screenwriter, best known for his collaborations with Woody Allen. After attending the University of Wisconsin, he wrote for television in the 1960s, including Candid Camera, The Tonight Show, The Dick Cavett Show. It was during this time that he met Allen, with whom he'd collaborate on several 1970s film scripts, including Sleeper, Annie Hall (which won the Best Original Screenplay Academy Award), and Manhattan.
Brickman directed several of his own scripts in the 1980s, but none were commercial successes. He reunited with Allen in 1993 to write Manhattan Murder Mystery.
