Personal Quote:

So, when I was discharged after about four years in the army. a friend of mine who was living out here in Hollywood wrote to me and said, 'If you and your wife haven't decided as to the future course of your lives, why not come out here and live with us while you recover and make a decision?' We gladly accepted and moved to Hollywood. I began to write, and after a year or so, I was in. See more »

Began as a writer for radio before entering films in the early 1950's. See more »
