Film producer and writer Collier Young (August 19, 1908 - December 25, 1980) worked on many films in the 1950s before becoming a television producer for such shows as NBC's Ironside and CBS's The Wild, Wild West.
Young was married to actress and director Ida Lupino from 1948 to 1951, and to actress Joan Fontaine from 1952 to 1961; both marriages ended in divorce. His film production credits included Outrage and The Hitch-Hiker, both with Lupino as director.
After his divorce from Lupino, he was executive director of her 1957-1958 CBS sitcom Mr. Adams and Eve, co-starring Lupino's then husband Howard Duff.
He died on Christmas Day 1980 from a road accident at the age of 72.
