David Sherwin

David Sherwin-White (24 February 1942 – 8 January 2018) was a British screenwriter best known for his collaborations with director Lindsay Anderson and actor Malcolm McDowell on the films ''if....'' (1968) (for which Sherwin was nominated for a BAFTA Award for Best Screenplay), ''O Lucky Man!'' (1973) and ''Britannia Hospital'' (1982).

Sherwin attended Tonbridge School, which provided much of the inspiration for the content of ''if....''.

In 1996, Sherwin published a memoir, ''Going Mad in Hollywood: And Life with Lindsay Anderson'', (Andre Deutsch) . A film of the memoir was planned by the director Michael Winterbottom, with Malcolm McDowell cast as Anderson, but never materialised. Provided by Wikipedia
