Motion Picture Producer. The son of Jack Cohn and nephew of Harry Cohn, co-founders of Columbia Pictures, he joined that studio at age 18 and received his first producer credit for "The Main Event" (1938). Along with his brother Ralph Cohn he was responsible for overseeing Columbia's steady output of program filler, including serials and westerns. In 1950 he formed Robert Cohn Productions, an autonomous unit within the family enterprise, and turned out some above-average films, among them "The Killer That Stalked New York" (1950), "The Barefoot Mailman" (1951), "The Interns" (1962), and "The New Interns" (1964). Cohn's feature-length documentary "Young Americans" won an Academy Award in 1969, but the Academy took the Oscar back when it discovered the film had been released too early to be eligible. Cohn quit show business immediately afterwards. His other credits include "The Lone Wolf in London" (1947), "Adventures in Silverado" (1948), "Black Eagle" (1948), and "Kazan" (1949).
