      Highest Rated: 100% Salt of the Earth (1954)

      Birthday: Jul 1, 1914

      Birthplace: McAlester, Oklahoma, USA

      Talented writer whose career was interrupted by the HUAC hearings of 1951--the year he earned an Oscar for co-adapting "A Place in the Sun." Wilson subsequently wrote fellow blacklistee Herbert Biberman's independently produced leftist classic "Salt of the Earth" (1954) and worked uncredited on such films as "Friendly Persuasion" (1956), "The Bridge on the River Kwai" (1957) and "Lawrence of Arabia" (1962). He publicly resurfaced in the mid-1960s, contributing to Franklin Schaffner's sci-fi classic "Planet of the Apes" (1968) and Richard Fleischer's much-maligned biopic, "Che!" (1969).
