Producer/writer Stanley Shapiro came to films after years in the radio and TV mills. He specialized in frothy romantic comedies, usually starring Doris Day. He won an Oscar for the screenplay of the Day/Hudson hit Pillow Talk (1959), and also wrote the popular Cary Grant vehicles Operation Petticoat (1959) and That Touch of Mink (1962) (again with Doris Day as co-star). The last film to carry Stanley Shapiro's name in the credits was 1988's Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, a remake of Shapiro's 1964 farce Bedroom Story.
