Michael Blake (1945-2015)


Recommended Posts

Author Michael Blake, whose 1988 novel "Dances with Wolves" was turned into an Oscar-winning motion picture two years later, has died at the age of 69. The film -- produced and directed by its star, Kevin Costner -- won seven 1990 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director. Blake received an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay. 


The film, hailed by critics for its sensitive treatment of Native Americans, was the first Western since "Cimarron" (1930-31) to win Best Picture honors.
