Starting out as a staff writer at RKO, Ian McLellan Hunter worked on the studio's Dr. Christian B-movies before moving up the ladder to better quality projects. In 1953, he won a Best Story Oscar for Roman Holiday -- or did he? Forty years after the award, the truth came out: Hunter had acted as a "front" for blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. Ironically, Hunter was, himself, hounded out of Hollywood during the Red Scare and forced to work pseudonymously until 1979. He spent his final creative years in television; his contributions to the small screen included adaptations of Tom Wolfe's You Can't Go Home Again (1979) and Bruce Catton and John Leekley's The Blue and the Gray (1982). Hunter died in 1991.
