Pulitzer Prize winning playwright William Inge has had many of his short stories and stage productions adapted to the screen. Examples include Come Back, Little Sheba (1952) and Bus Stop (1956). He also penned three screenplays of his own, one of which Splendor in the Grass (1961), a film he also helped produce, won an Oscar. For his third screenplay Bus Riley's Back in Town, he used the pen name Walter Gage.
