Despite his assertion that the "film writer is regarded as a technician, like an electrician," Bolt's writing has enjoyed a degree of respect in the movie world usually found only in the theater. He has won three best screenplay Oscars, two for his collaborations with David Lean--"Lawrence of Arabia" (1962) and "Dr. Zhivago" (1965)--and one for Fred Zinnemann's "A Man for All Seasons" (1966). The critics took less kindly to his sole directorial effort, "Lady Caroline Lamb" (1972).
