Ray Connolly is a British writer. He is best known for his journalism and for writing the screenplays for the films That'll Be the Day and the sequel Stardust, for which he won a Writers Guild of Great Britain best screenplay award.[1]

Early life[edit]

Ray Connolly was born and brought up in Lancashire.[2] He was educated at West Park Catholic Grammar School, St. Helens, Ormskirk Grammar School and the London School of Economics[3] where he read social anthropology. There he also edited the LSE magazine Clare Market Review and was an associate editor of the student film magazine Motion.

Career[edit]

After entering journalism as a graduate trainee at the Liverpool Daily Post, Connolly then moved to the London Evening Standard where he interviewed, among others, many Sixties and Seventies rock stars and cultural icons, including the Beatles, Muhammad Ali and Elvis Presley. Many of his interviews with the Beatles are collected in his eBook The Ray Connolly Beatles Archive, while other interviews are collected in Stardust Memories - Talking About My Generation. He was due to interview John Lennon on the day the ex-Beatle was murdered, an event he wrote about in the BBC radio play Unimaginable''. In addition to the biography John Lennon 1940-1980, he wrote the introduction to The Beatles Complete songbook.

He has written many articles for the Daily Mail,[4] as well as The Sunday Times, The Times, The Daily Telegraph and The Observer.[3]

His novels include; A Girl Who Came To Stay, Newsdeath, Sunday Morning, Shadows on a Wall, Love Out of Season (which was adapted for radio as God Bless Our Love) and Kill For Love.

For the cinema he wrote the films That'll Be The Day and Stardust – which was voted the Best Screenplay of 1974 by the Writers' Guild of Great Britain. He also wrote and directed the feature-length documentary entitled James Dean: The First American Teenager, while his television drama series have included Honky Tonk Heroes, Lytton's Diary and Perfect Scoundrels. TV films include Forever Young for Channel 4 and Defrosting The Fridge for the BBC, while he co-wrote, with Alan Benson, the BBC2 George Martin series about music The Rhythm of Life.

He has also written several radio plays, including Lost Fortnight (which is about Raymond Chandler in Hollywood), the series Tim Merryman's Days of Clover, and Sorry, Boys, You Failed The Audition, as well as several short stories for various publications, which are collected in A Handful of Love.[5]

Personal life[edit]

He is married, has three children, and two grandchildren, and lives with his wife, Plum, in London.
