Personal Quote:

[describing his training for the British SOE in WWII] Serious gentlemen taught us the art of blowing up a bridge, attaching explosives to the side of a ship, derailing a train, as well as that of dispatching to the next world - as silently as possible - a night-time guard.

Trivia:

Was credited with the screenplay for The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957), even though it was actually written by the blacklisted duo of Carl Foreman and Michael Wilson. (Credit was changed posthumously in the 1980s.) He was not present at the awards ceremony. Actress Kim Novak accepted the award on his behalf. See more »
