John Michael Hayes

Hitchcock and Hayes on the set of [[To Catch a Thief]] (1955)


John Michael Hayes was an American playwright born in Worcester, Massachusetts. He wrote for newspapers and radio shows before becoming a movie screenwriter.

Hayes collaborated with director Alfred Hitchcock on four films: Rear Window (for which he won an Edgar Award and an Oscar nomination), To Catch a Thief, The Trouble with Harry and The Man Who Knew Too Much. Their first collaboration, Rear Window, is considered by many critics to be one of Hitchcock's best and most thrilling pictures. The Man Who Knew Too Much, a remake of Hitchcock's 1934 film of the same name, became one of the most financially successful films of its year of release.

He died of natural causes on November 19, 2008, in Hanover, New Hampshire.
