LOS ANGELES (AP) - The family of Irving Ravetch says the screenwriter-producer has died at age 89 in Los Angeles after a lingering illness.

A statement from the family says Ravetch died Sunday at Cedars Sinai Hospital.

Ravetch and his wife, Harriet Frank Jr., received Oscar nominees for writing adapted screenplays for 1963’s “Hud” and 1979’s “Norma Rae.”

The couple also collaborated on “The Long, Hot Summer,” “Hombre” and “Conrack,” among other films.

The family says Ravetch is survived by his wife, a sister and a brother.
