Biography

Rick Stevenson was an American earning a doctorate degree in international relations at Oxford when he produced fellow Yank Michael Hoffman's "Privileged" (1982), a well-received comedy that has become a footnote in motion picture history as the film debut of Hugh Grant. With Hoffman and three others, Stevenson formed the Oxford Film Company with David Puttnam and John Schlesinger as honorary chairs. They created Britain's first national screenwriting competition and a summer institute for filmmakers. Through their new company, Stevenson produced Hoffman's "Restless Natives" (1985), a comedy about two Scotsmen who rob American tourists.
