Born 29 January 1939
Fort Sheridan, Illinois

Polly Platt (born 29 January 1939) is an American film producer, production designer and screenwriter.[1]

Platt was married to Peter Bogdanovich from the early 1960s until the early 1970s. She helped him write his first movie Targets (1968), and did set design on that film, along with The Last Picture Show (1971) and Paper Moon (1973). They divorced after Bogdanovich left her during the filming of The Last Picture Show for star Cybill Shepherd. Platt and Bogdanovich had two children together, Antonia and Sashy Bogdanovich.

Platt was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Art Direction for the film Terms of Endearment (1983). She has also worked as an executive producer; Broadcast News (1987) and The War of the Roses (1989) are among the films she has worked on. Her screenwriting credits include Pretty Baby, Good Luck, Miss Wyckoff, and A Map of the World.

The film Irreconcilable Differences, starring Ryan O'Neal, Shelley Long and Drew Barrymore, is loosely based on her and Bogdanovich's marriage and divorce.
