Personal Quote:

Young people today seem to admire Sammy [his fictional character Sammy Glick]. I do find it rather disconcerting. Once I was speaking at a college, and a young man came up afterwards and said, 'I just want to shake your hand. I'm a senior, and I've been worrying about how I'll make it in the real world. And now that I've read your book, I'm inspired.' See more »

Trivia:

Schulberg's screenwriting career got of to a shaky start, due to an ill-conceived collaborative effort with F. Scott Fitzgerald on Winter Carnival (1939), a romantic comedy set in Schulberg's own alma mater. He was fired from the production by Walter Wanger half-way through shooting. In 1950, Schulberg wrote a novel, "The Disenchanted", based on his experiences with the project. See more »
