Personal Quote:

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. See more »

Trivia:

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. See more »
