Budd Wilson Schulberg
Did You Know?
[on his friendly testimony before the House Un-American Activities Committee] "I don't feel what some people expect me to feel. What's painful is to have believed in something that sounded so right, and that turned out the way the Soviet Union turned out. It's more the disillusionment that hurts for me."
Schulberg's screenwriting career got of to a shaky start, due to an ill-conceived collaborative effort with F. Scott Fitzgerald on Winter Carnival
(1939), a romantic comedy set in Schulberg's own alma mater. He was fired from the production by Walter Wanger half-way through shooting. In 1950, Schulberg wrote a novel, "The Disenchanted", based on his experiences with the project.
