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:

A brilliant writer who was a victim of the "Red Scare" era in the 1940s and was blacklisted in the film industry for his alleged Communist sympathies. Reinstated in October 1997 along with other blacklisted victims--a bit too late for him, as he died in 1984. See more »
