Personal Quote:

My goal was always simply to do good work without having to run about looking for jobs.

Trivia:

Was blacklisted during the Red Scare of the 1950s. It seems that already blacklisted author Dalton Trumbo had used Abbott's name at one point as an alias. Eventually, a producer, wanting to hire Abbott, was able to have his name removed from the list. See more »

Trademark:
