Robert Getchell (December 6, 1936 – October 21, 2017) was an American screenwriter. Getchell wrote the 1974 film Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore[2] and created the sitcom based on that film, Alice. Getchell was also the screenwriter for the 1981  docudrama film Mommie Dearest which is based on Christina Crawford's nightmarish childhood with her violent and manipulative alcoholic adoptive mother, the actress Joan Crawford. The film was meant to be taken seriously with a subject concerning child abuse/trafficking however, Getchell's unusual script became over-the-top and unintentionally amusing that it won the 2nd Golden Raspberry award for worst Screenplay which developed Mommie Dearest into a memorable cult film.

He died on 21 October 2017 aged 81.[3]
