1993's 'Sleepless in Seattle,' a film written and directed by Nora Ephron. Ephron, the essayist, author and filmmaker who challenged and thrived in the male-dominated worlds of movies and journalism and was loved, respected and feared for her devastating and diverting wit, died June 26, 2012 in Manhattan. Born into a family of screenwriters, a top journalist in her 20s and 30s, then a best-selling author and successful director, Ephron was among the most quotable and influential writers of her generation. She wrote and directed such favorites as 'Julie & Julia' and 'Sleepless in Seattle,' and her books included the novel 'Heartburn,' about her marriage to Washington Post reporter Carl Bernstein.
