BIOGRAPHY

Screenwriter at Columbia who did sparkling work for directors including Frank Capra, Leo McCarey, George Cukor and Joseph Mankiewicz. Buchman had begun a successful climb up the studio's corporate ladder when, in 1951, he was called to testify before HUAC. He admitted to having once been a member of the Communist Party but refused to "name names" and was blacklisted. Buchman moved to France in the 1960s.
