Although Eric Overmyer’s reputation rests primarily on his stage plays, he has also written for film and television, most notably for such shows as St. Elsewhere, The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd, and the television movie Rear Window (1998), in which he blended the Cornell Woolrich short story with details from actor-producer Christopher Reeve’s book about life.
