Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. David Schad Ward (born 25 October 1945) is an American film director and screen writer. Ward was born in Providence, Rhode Island, the son of Miriam (n e Schad) and Robert McCollum Ward. Ward has degrees from Pomona College (BA), as well as both USC and the UCLA Film School (MFA). He was employed at an educational film production company when he sold his screenplay for The Sting (1974), which led to an Oscar win for Best Original Screenplay. After this initial success, his follow-up projects were less critically and commercially well received, including Ward's maiden directorial effort, Cannery Row (1982), and a sequel The Sting II (1983). Efforts made by Ward to sell a script based on the frontier days of California were scuttled by an industry-wide "ban" on Westerns after the failure of Michael Cimino's Heaven's Gate (1980).
