Carl Foreman Facts
Wrote the original draft of the Marlon Brando motorcycle film, The Wild One (1953).

A brilliant writer who was a victim of the McCarthyite "Red Scare" in the 1950s and was blacklisted in Hollywood 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.
