Harry d'Abbadie d'Arrast (6 May 1897 – 17 March 1968) was an Argentinean born, French screenwriter and director.[1]


d'Abbadie d'Arrast was born in Argentina in 1893 to a family of French aristocratic origins.[1] He moved to the United States in 1922 and settled in Hollywood.[1] He worked as a technical advisor to Charlie Chaplin and had made his first film by 1927.[2]

He was nominated at the 4th Academy Awards for the now defunct category of Best Story for the film Laughter. His nomination was shared with Donald Ogden Stewart and Douglas Z. Doty.[3]

He also was in the French army during World War I. d'Abbadie d'Arrast married retired silent-film actress Eleanor Boardman (1898–1991) in 1940, and remained married until his death in 1968.[1]
