Donald Bevan, veteran, artist and...

...playwright, died at age 93. The former prisoner of war coauthored the play Stalag 17, which was later made into a movie, above.

Bevan's obit in the Times recalls the unusual circumstances under which he was introduced to his future bride:

According to his son Mark, he met his wife, the actress Patricia Kirkland, when his friends set him up on a phony blind date. Mr. Bevan showed up at her apartment, only to learn that there was no date.

“But I guess she liked him anyway,” Mark Bevan said.
