Birth Name: Fannie Flagg
Born: 09/21/1944
Birth Place: Birmingham, Alabama, USA

Having begun her career as a novelist with "Coming Attractions" (1981), Flagg wrote the popular "Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe", published in 1987. In 1991, with the collaboration of screenwriter Carol Sobieski, she turned the novel into the film "Fried Green Tomatoes". A gently feminist portrait of two women growing up in the Depression-era rural South, the film (which excised the lesbian content of the book) was a huge popular hit and netted Flagg an Oscar nomination for her screenwriting debut. Her TV writing resumed in 1987 when her own Southern background helped Flagg write material for Dolly Parton's ABC variety series "Dolly".
