Personal Quote:

[on the failure of his friend and partner Stanley Kramer to support him during the days of the blacklist]: Stanley had been a long time becoming a liberal and he had grown to love President Roosevelt very much and he felt it was unjust that, as a liberal, he should be tarred with the Communist brush. We were very successful and he really didn't want to be guilty by association.

Trivia:

Wrote the original draft of the Marlon Brando motorcycle film, The Wild One (1953). The script fell afoul of the Breen Office censors--supposedly because it sought to explain the motorcyclists' sense of frustration instead of just portraying them as crazed, violent outlaws--and was re-written, to Brando's bitter disappointment.
