Arthur Caesar (9 March 1892 – 20 June 1953) was a screenwriter. Romanian by birth, and brother of the songwriter Irving Caesar, Caesar first started writing Hollywood movies in 1924. Most of his movies were in the B-movie category. He won an Academy Award for the story of Manhattan Melodrama (1934), which is most famous today for being the film that John Dillinger had just been to see before getting gunned down outside the cinema.
