About the Author:

Herbert J. Biberman (March 4, 1900 – June 30, 1971), was an American screenwriter and film director. He may be best known for having been one of the Hollywood Ten as well as directing Salt of the Earth, a 1954 film about a zinc miners' strike in Grant County, New Mexico. He was born in Philadelphia, PA, to Joseph and Eva Biberman. Biberman's pre-blacklist career included writing such films as King of Chinatown, When Tomorrow Comes, Action in Arabia, The Master Race, and New Orleans, as well as directing such films as One Way Ticket, Meet Nero Wolfe, and The Master Race. He married actress Gale Sondergaard in 1930; the marriage endured until Biberman's death. Herbert Biberman died from bone cancer in 1971 in New York City. Brother of American artist, Edward Biberman.

Review:

"Likely the most revealing and instructive narrative of the film business in the last fifty years." -- From the Preface by James Monaco
