  • American screenwriter Harold Buchman paid his early dues at Columbia, turning out such better-than-usual "B"s as The Case of the Missing Men (1935) and The Devil is Driving (1937). At 20th Century-Fox from 1940 to 1946, Buchman worked on a number of worthwhile programmers, including The Perfect Snob (1941) and Gentleman at Heart (1946). His timely Broadway stage farce Snafu ran into censorship problems when it was adapted for the screen in 1945--at least until he was able to persuade the Hays office that the title was an acronym for "Situation Normal, All Fouled Up". In 1951, Sidney Buchman was blacklisted from Hollywood after appearing as an "unfriendly" witness before the HUAC; he would not receive another screen credit until 1970's The Landlord.
