Mini Bio (1)

Producer and screenwriter who, among many in his craft labeled in the late 1940's and early 1950's as 'subversive' by the U.S. House Committee on Un-American Activities, was blacklisted, Jarrico in the prime of his career. His name was left out of the credits of most American films that he wrote during the 50's and 60's, and in others replaced by a pseudonym. He defied the ban, however, in producing the then little known film Salt of the Earth (1954), which would win awards in Europe - and eventually be listed by the U.S. Library of Congress in its catalogue of films to be preserved for all time! Ironically, Jarrico's death occurred as he was motoring home from a ceremony in observance of the 50th anniversary of the House Committee's first hearings.
