POLIWOOD: "I coulda been a contender" - Remembering the great screenwriter Budd Schulberg

Poliwood-buddLionel and I discuss the contribution of the great… and I mean great… Budd Schulberg in this week’s POLIWOOD. Suffice it to say, we both admired the novelist-screenwriter tremendously. His life raises many interesting questions about life on the Hollywood Left in the last century. Schulberg was certainly in middle of it and we deal with that extensively in the episode.

You can see it here. Other Poliwoods are here. Next week: John Hughes (the third memoriam we have done with Schulberg and Ron Silver.) The following week we are interviewing Majority Whip Eric Cantor in studio. [What does he have to do with Poliwood?-ed. You’ll see.]
