John Vlahos died on April 8, 2004, at home in Westport, Connecticut at the age of 87.
Among other notable works were his script for the television film Silent Night, Lonely Night (1969), starring Lloyd Bridges and Shirley Jones, and Act of Reprisal (1964), a feature film on the Cyprus dispute that starred a young Jeremy Brett. A 1991 review of a revival of the film noted “a certain lustiness and clarity in its storytelling.”
Vlahos’s play The Golden Age of Pericles Pappas, for which he was awarded a fellowship from the Ford Foundation, was produced at the Tulsa Little Theater in 1959. His biopic on labor leader Samuel Gompers rooted his activism in the study of the Talmud. He also wrote a promotional film, The Big Decision, for Wittenberg University, which awarded Vlahos an honorary doctorate in 1958, and he developed poetic liturgies performed at the Unitarian Church in Westport.
His credits include 17 film screenplays, 70 radio scripts, 52 network television live and film dramas, and more than 200 episodes for various daytime shows. Among the honors he received are the Sylvania Award in 1958 (for Beaver Patrol, a comedy for the U.S. Steel Hour) and an Emmy Award in 1962 (for Killer Instinct, an episode of The Defenders). He also received an Ohio State Radio-TV Award for Best Documentary, a Freedom Foundation Award for Best Historic Family Series, an Institution for Education Award for Distinguished Radio Writing, and the 1959 Ford Foundation Award for playwriting.
Vlahos excelled especially in plays broadcast live. Among Vlahos’s early successes was A Business Proposition (1955), “a tender tale or two middle-aged people who attempt to establish a business despite tremendous odds,” and A Bend in the Road (1957), which he described as being “about a Protestant minister’s search for his usefulness. He’s an old man in a nation of youth and youth’s success. What can he contribute. He goes through a spiritual evaluation of himself, to the world, to himself, and to his family.” Other notable early works include Tongues of Angels (1958), a drama about a farmer who feigns muteness to hide his severe stutter, and Beaver Patrol (1958), a comedy about a retired New York businessman who assumes leadership of a Cub Scout pack. His Cold War drama, The Brandenberg Gate, set in Berlin, was produced for television three times in eight years—first for Motorola TV Hour with Jack Palance and Maria Riva (1953), then with Climax! (under the title The Largest City in Captivity) with Franchot Tone and Viveca Lindfors (1957), and finally for the United States Steel Hour with Richard Kiley and Dina Merrill (1961).
In 1941, he moved to the West Coast and wrote for a series of Range Busters westerns for Monogram Pictures. During World War II, he served in the Navy in the South Pacific. After World War II, he spent seven years with the Armed Forces Radio Service. He turned his hand to television in 1952, when Hal Peary, best known for his role as the Great Gildersleeve, commissioned him to write episodes of a planned series called Call Me Papa; or, Pigeon Point. After several years in Hollywood, Vlahos moved in 1958 to Westport, Connecticut, where he lived the rest of his life.
Born in Springfield, Ohio to Greek Orthodox parents, Vlahos worked in the family restaurant as a youth. He attended Wittenberg University and Carnegie Tech (class of 1939), where he majored in drama.
John Vlahos lived in Westport, Connecticut for 50 years with his wife Olivia Vlahos, a professor and bestselling author. They met in 1939 at the Old Wharf Theatre, in Provincetown, Massachusetts, home of many independently produced plays and often continued its legacy of experiment in art. It was for a time the home base for the Community Theatre division of the Federal Theatre Project (1936–39), used as a training center to send directors, actors, teachers and designers out to the five boroughs of New York City to create theatre projects.
John Vlahos (December 26, 1917 – April 8, 2004) was, along with his contemporaries Horton Foote, Reginald Rose, and Rod Serling, one of the leading screenwriters of the 1950s and 1960s, writing for such series as The Philco Television Playhouse, Studio One, Robert Montgomery Presents, Goodyear Television Playhouse, The United States Steel Hour, Climax!, Playhouse 90, The Alcoa Hour, Boris Karloff’s Thriller, Route 66, The Defenders, The Nurses, Doctor Kildare, and Marcus Welby, M.D..
