Screenwriter and two-time Academy Award nominee Stewart Stern, who's best known for writing the screenplay for Nicholas Ray's "Rebel Without a Cause," has died. He was 92.

The Writers Guild of America West says Stern died Monday at a Seattle, Washington, hospital after a battle with cancer.

Stern was a World War II veteran and Purple Heart recipient. He also penned the scripts for "The Last Movie," ''The Ugly American," ''Rachel, Rachel," and a handful of other films and television movies during a Hollywood career that spanned more than 50 years.

Writers Guild of America West President Howard A. Rodman says Stern had lived many lives and should have been with us forever.

Stern is the subject of an upcoming documentary from director Christopher McQuarrie.

He is survived by his wife.
