Playwright, author, and screenwriter Sigmund Miller launched his career as the head writer for the popular radio show The Inner Sanctum following service in the Army Signal Corps. In the early '50s, Miller was blacklisted after two of his Broadway plays, One Bright Day and An Ancient Instinct, were deemed potentially subversive by Senator Joseph McCarthy and his House Un-American Activities Committee. Miller subsequently moved to England where One Bright Day ran for three years on the London stage. In the late '50s, Miller began writing screenplays and (using a pen name) was also an active script doctor. A prolific author, Miller's novels include The Snow Leopard and The Good Life.
