(1904-1964) US screenwriter and author, who also wrote as by Cyrus T Fisher; his suspense thrillers normally stop short of the fantastic, though The Fear Makers (1945), filmed as The Fearmakers (1958) to his own script, describes a very Near Future conspiracy to betray America. The mystery embedded in the nature of the returning soldier protagonist's dead partner edges into the fantastic; the film is entirely mundane. [JC]
