A former reporter, he went to Hollywood in the late 30s to work on a screen adaptation of his own story, "Fast Company." Writer of novels and detective thrillers under the name of Marco Page, Kurnitz's political activities were brought into question after WWII, as were many others. He went to Europe for 15 years and saw a lot of his work reaching the screen under someone else's name. In 1965, the Harry Kurnitz Foreign Student Creative Writing Awards were born, and in his will it was noted that the awards continue after his death via a grant to the University of California, Los Angeles.
