1 Portrayal |
Did You Know?
The cynical screenwriter is finished before he starts. He cannot possibly do his best work if he is convinced it will never be filmed. The good writer pursues the illusory goal of getting his own way. Falling short of one's mark usually produces a better picture than a cop-out.
Graduated from the University of California at Berkely in 1936, majoring in literature and history. Served in the U.S. Marine Corps as a radio analyst during World War II, attaining the rank of first lieutenant by the time of his discharge.
