Bess Taffel Boyle (December 10, 1913 – July 21, 2000) was an American screenwriter, whose career was effectively ended after she was identified as a member of the Communist Party during the McCarthy period.
Taffel is known for writing such films as Elopement.
She wrote only a few television scripts from 1969 to 1974, before she ended her career entirely. She had worked in the Yiddish theatre before becoming a writer in Hollywood.
She was married to Robert F. Boyle, an Academy Award-winning film production designer and art director, until her death from a stroke in 2000 at age 86. Her widower died at the age of 100 on August 1, 2010. His career was apparently not impacted by his wife's blacklisting.[citation needed ]
