Film and Television Producer, Director. He is best remembered today for the break up of his partnership with Albert "Cubby" Broccoli, when he disagreed with Broccoli that the James Bond novel series would translate over to film. Allen reportedly told Bond author Ian Fleming during their initial meeting that his stories weren't even good enough for television. He later partnered with Dean Martin to produced the popular "Matt Helm" television series in which Martin also starred. Allen, who began his career as a film editor, won an Academy Award in 1948 for producing and directing the short film, "Climbing the Matterhorn."
