ANSWER: C.) Alan Jay Lerner wrote the screenplays to three Oscar best-picture winners: "An American in Paris" (1952), "Gigi" (1958) and "My Fair Lady" (1964). He only won Oscars for two of those scripts: "An American in Paris" and "Gigi." "My Fair Lady" lost the race for best adapted screenplay to "Becket" by Edward Anhalt.
