The Most of Nora Ephron
About this deal
In 1986, Ephron wrote the script for the romantic comedy When Harry Met Sally.... Released in 1989, the film was directed by Rob Reiner, and starred Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan. The film depicted the decade-long relationship between Harry (Crystal) and Sally (Ryan) as they navigate their own romantic relationships. Ephron claimed that she wrote this screenplay with Reiner in mind as the character of Harry, and herself as the character of Sally.  The film has become iconic in the romantic comedy genre, most notably for the scene in which Sally pretends to have an orgasm in the middle of Katz's Deli during lunch. Ephron said she wrote the part of Sally simulating an orgasm into the script per Ryan's suggestions. Additionally, the comment "I'll have what she's having" said by a deli patron (played by Rob Reiner's real-life mother Estelle Reiner) watching the scene unfold nearby, was an idea from Billy Crystal.  Ephron's script was nominated for the 1990 Oscar in Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen.  1990s [ edit ] She wasn’t just [the] intrepid reporter and filmmaker...who was played onscreen by no less than Meryl Streep. She was also someone who lived, and who people who never met her felt like they knew...when a writer’s voice makes you feel befriended, you want more of it even after the person is gone.

And I also hope that you will choose to make some of that trouble on behalf of women.”
