In 1946, he earned an American Academy Award nomination for his co-writing on Rossellini's Paisan. Hayes also worked without credit on the script of De Sica's b The Bicycle Thief. In 1951, Hayes was again Oscar-nominated for the screenplay of Teresa. In 1954, his play The Girl on the Via Flaminia, itself an adaptation of his novel, became a film.
