From the Hollywood Reporter: “Herman Wouk, Author of ‘The Caine Mutiny’ and ‘The Winds of War,’ Dies at 103”
Herman Wouk, the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Caine Mutiny that became a Broadway hit and then a Columbia Pictures classic that starred Humphrey Bogart in a career-defining performance, has died. He was 103.
Wouk died Friday in his sleep at his home in Palm Springs, his literary agent Amy Rennert told the Associated Press.
Wouk wrote the Caribbean-set 1965 comedy “Don’t Stop the Carnival”, which Jimmy Buffett used as the basis for a 1998 album and short-lived musical.
The musical “Don’t Stop the Carnival” had a six week run at the Coconut Grove playhouse in Miami in April 1997. The musical then had a run at the Atlantis Hotel in the Bahamas in 2001.
