Felix Adler

Felix Adler (January 22, 1884 – March 25, 1963) was an American screenwriter whose career spanned over 30 years. He is known for his work with the Three Stooges, including their Men in Black (1934), which received an Academy Award nomination for "Best Short Subject - Comedy".

Adler was born on January 22, 1884, in Chicago, Illinois. He started out as a vaudeville actor and then became a title writer for Mack Sennett silents in the early 1920s, easing into talkies with three Harold Lloyd features and as a staff writer for the Columbia Pictures Short Subject department, a position he held until its demise in 1957.

While the vast majority of Adler's writing credits were for Sennett and Three Stooges short subjects, Adler co-wrote six features for Laurel and Hardy as well as two for Abbott and Costello.

A resident of Hollywood Hills, he was sociable, chatting with neighbors at the Beachwood Village Laundry and giving pocket money to local children. His house became a stop-off for neighbors on their way to and from the Beachwood Market because he would invariably invite them in for a refreshment.

Adler died of abdominal cancer at the Motion Picture & Television Country House and Hospital in Woodland Hills, California on March 25, 1963. He was 79.

Adler was cremated; his ashes are interred at the Chapel of the Pines Crematory in Los Angeles, services privately held by his family.
