Edward S. Feldman was an American film and television producer.
Born and raised in The Bronx, where he attended DeWitt Clinton High School, he graduated from Michigan State University, after which he was hired by 20th Century Fox to work as a writer in the studio's press book department in its Manhattan headquarters. He quickly rose within the ranks, becoming the contact for fan magazines, then trade papers, and finally the New York City press. His employment at Fox was interrupted by a two-year stint with the United States Air Force, during which he was stationed at the Dover Air Force Base in Delaware. His commanding officer expected him to use his skills as a publicist to get him promoted from colonel to general, a task he completed successfully before he returned to civilian life. In 1959, he left Fox to promote The World of Suzie Wong and its producer, Ray Stark, for Paramount Pictures. His assignment began with location shooting in Hong Kong and ended with the release of the film. He clashed with Stark throughout the production, which prompted him to resign from Paramount and join Embassy Pictures as the head of advertising and publicity. Two years later, Stark invited him to join him at Seven Arts Productions, where his first project was the controversial screen adaptation of Lolita. Due to his intervention, the Catholic Legion of Decency agreed not to rate the film "condemned" if the studio would enforce a rule banning anyone under the age of eighteen from theaters showing it. Once Seven Arts acquired Warner Bros., Feldman relocated to Hollywood, where he remained with Warner Bros-Seven Arts for two years, during which time he became active in film production.
For Disney, he produced Honey, I Blew Up the Kid , Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book, 101 Dalmatians, 102 Dalmatians, Green Card, The Doctor, My Father the Hero and K-19: The Widowmaker, and he played a Las Vegas couple in Honey, I Blew Up the Kid and a taxi driver in Green Card.
