This timeline contains all information about Roald Dahl’s life, the books he wrote, and movies, television shows, and theater productions he was involved in. It continues past his death to the present day (since new Dahl works are still being released).
Note: Dahl didn’t actually have much to do with this film. He found out about it after it was produced and was surprised there was no acknowledgement of his story “Beware of the Dog”. He instructed his agent to ask MGM for a settlement. After a short fight with the studio, Dahl was granted his credit as well as a payment.
