Oscar Millard
The details (from wikipedia)


English writer Oscar Millard (1908 – 1990) found success in Hollywood when he collaborated on the screenplay to the 1949 hit Come to the Stable, a comedy about nuns. He fared better the following year when he picked up an Academy Award nomination for the gritty war movie The Frogmen.
Millard's output after that was less successful though interesting: the James Stewart thriller No Highway in the Sky (1951) and Otto Preminger's full-guns-blazing femme fatale movie Angel Face (1952).
Millard's reputation was considerably tarnished (as indeed was everyone involved in the project) with the deliriously bad John Wayne-Susan Hayward barbarian epic The Conqueror (1956), a film probably more famous now for filming in a nuclear bomb testing site and most of the cast and crew succumbing to early, cancer-related deaths.
After that, Millard found consistent work on television, writing scripts for such shows as Wagon Train, The Alfred Hitchcock Hour for which his was awarded in 2013 by the Writers Guild of America (101 Best written TV Series) and Twelve O'Clock High.
