History:

American TV producer and scriptwriter.

Marion Parsonnet studied at the Newark Academy and later at Harvard University. In 1937 she was hired by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer as a screenwriter and from 1941 she worked for different film studios, including Warner Bros., Columbia Pictures and RKO Pictures. She contributed to Rita Hayworth's rise to the status of superstar in the 1940s by including her in films such as Cover Girl (1944) and Gilda (1946). Both productions, the first a musical, the second a film noir, enjoyed great success at the box office and are now considered classics of US cinema. In the 1950s Parsonnet founded her own production studio on Long Island, New York, and worked as a television producer for a while before returning to writing screenplays in 1958, this time for series such as Maverick (1959) and Bonanza (1961). Parsonnet died in 1960 aged 55 and was buried at Oheb Shalom Cemetery in Hillside, New Jersey.
