      In the 1940s, writer Roy Huggins worked in the civil service and as an engineer; but he also wrote novels and soon started writing for movies. While under contract to RKO and Columbia Pictures, Huggins was wrote the screenplays for film-noirs such as "The Lady Gambles" with Barbara Stanwyck, and "Pushover" with Fred MacMurray and Kim Novak. He also wrote "Gun Fury," a rare 3-D western, directed by Raoul Walsh and starring Rock Hudson. Huggins moved away from feature films and started to make a name for himself in television in the late 1950s, first as a writer on the James Garner western series "Maverick," and in the 1960s he took the reins of television production at 20th Century-Fox and stayed on there for many years. During his tenure, he created the long-running hit "The Fugitive," starring David Janssen as a wrongly convicted man searching for the real killer of his wife, and produced the cop series "Baretta" before creating another classic James Garner show: "The Rockford Files."
