Personal Quote:

[About his break with Communism and his decision to name names] I didn't think, after two years of thinking, that any one individual can indulge himself in the luxury of individual morality or pit it against what I feel today very strongly is the security and safety of this nation." See more »

Trivia:

He became a contract screenwriter for Mervyn LeRoy at Warner Brothers (1936-45) when his latest play on Broadway closed after just four performances. His screenplays often focused on individuals either fighting, or being destroyed by, the system. Prompted by actor Dick Powell, he directed his first film in 1946. Though it was poorly received, he then had back-to-back hits with Body and Soul (1947)... See more »
