Biography

This very busy, high-energy film producer was already winning awards for photography while attending high school in her native Los Angeles. After completing graduate studies in London, Schwartz made several films with Roger Corman's New World Pictures, first as assistant director then eventually as producer, including "Candy Stripe Nurses" (1974), "Eat My Dust" (1976) and "The Bees" (released 1978. After leaving Corman, Schwartz started her own rock video company, producing videos for Barbra Streisand ("Left in the Dark"), Kris Kristofferson and Roger Daltry, among others. She also became an award-winning producer of TV commercials and spent her few spare minutes studying law.

Schwartz returned to feature films by developing "Crackers" for Universal in 1984, and went on to become an executive producer for two artists whose rock videos she had produced: Streisand ("Nuts," 1987) and Bette Midler ("Beaches," 1988). Schwartz has since produced "Joe vs. the Volcano" (1990), "True Identity" (1991), "Sister Act" (1992), "Life with Mikey" (1993) and the unsuccessful "It's Pat!" (1994). In 1995, she teamed with Goldie Hawn to form Cherry Alley Productions.
