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 »

Trivia:

The screenplay he liked best of his own work was one which was never filmed, an original entitled "Harrow Alley", a very black comedy-drama with a period setting which alarmed studios by not fitting into usual generic requirements. It was optioned many times by studios, and both Dirk Bogarde and George C. Scott expressed strong interest in playing the leading role; but it remains unmade. See more »
