Howard G Minsky (21 January 1914 – 10 August 2008) was an American film producer, studio executive and former talent manager, who started his career during the silent film era, selling film reel door-to-door. After working for both 20th Century Fox and Paramount Pictures, he worked for a talent agency. He was best known as the producer of the blockbuster film Love Story. When released in 1970, it was widely thought that Love Story saved Paramount Pictures during a financially strained time. He later produced Jory in 1973.[1][2][3]

Minsky was married to his wife, Sylvia, for over 65 years until her death in 2002. He lived in Palm Beach, Florida until his death in 2008.
