Biography by Hal Erickson

American screenwriter Richard Macaulay began his seven-year association with Warner Bros. in 1935, when his novel Women Make Bum Newspapermen was filmed as Front Page Woman. Macauley's subsequent Warners assignments included The Roaring 20s (1939), They Drive by Night (1940) and Across the Pacific (1942). He moved to 20th Century-Fox in 1943, thence to RKO. During the Hollywood Blacklist era, the staunchly conservative Richard Macaulay gained fame (or notoriety) as a "friendly witness" before the HUAC, at one point naming 29 fellow Hollywoodites as communists.
