BIOGRAPHY

Wrote several outstanding screenplays for producer Stanley Kramer, including "Home of the Brave" (1949) and "The Men" (1950), before refusing to co-operate with the House Committee on Un-American Activities in the early 1950s. Subsequently blacklisted, Foreman went to England and worked uncredited on "Bridge on the River Kwai" (1957), before beginning his producing career in 1959. His sole directorial effort was "The Victors" (1963), an admirable WWII drama.
