George Froeschel (March 9, 1891 – November 22, 1979) was an Austrian novelist and screenwriter. In 1943, he received two Academy Award nominations for co-writing screenplays for Mrs. Miniver and Random Harvest. He won the Academy Award for Mrs. Miniver.


Georg Froeschel was born in 1891, the son of a Jewish banker in Vienna. He wrote his first novel during his time at grammar school, Ein Protest (A Protest). After his postgraduate studies he was Doctor of Laws. In World War I he wrote reports for the k.u.k. army. Following he wrote several novels, of which some were adapted for films in the 1920s. In the 1920s he worked for the Ullstein-Verlag in Berlin.

In 1936 he emigrated to the United States, where he first worked in the editorial office of Chicago's Coronet magazine. His efforts to find a job in Hollywood's film industry were not successful until April 1939, when Sidney Franklin of MGM engaged him as screenwriter.
