James Ivory

James Ivory is not English, as is widely believed. He worked closely with producer Ismail Merchant and screenwriter Ruth Jhabvala at Merchant Ivory Productions. Together they were responsible for A Room With a View (86), Mr. & Mrs. Bridge (91), Howards End (93), The Remains of the Day (94), The Golden Bowl (00) and 15 other feature films. In addition, Merchant Ivory produced another eight feature films with other writers. Most recently, Ivory produced and wrote the screenplay for Luca Guadagnino's Call Me By Your Name (17), which is based on André Aciman's novel of the same title.
