It is the writer who is the dreamer, the imaginer, the shaper. He works in loneliness with nebulous materials, with nothing more tangible than paper and a pot of ink; and his theatre is within his mind. He must generate phantoms out of himself and live with them until they take on a life of their own and become, not types, but characters working out their own destinies.
Refused to accept the Oscar for his writing for The Informer
(1935) because of the antagonism between several industry guilds and the academy over union matters.
