Artist & Co-Writer

My second job as an artist was on a Gardner Fox script. I was somewhat dissatisfied with it so Neal told me to change it [though I still had no plans to be a writer, and, as a writer, wouldn't want an artist rewriting me - a matter upon which Neal and I have since agreed to disagree <grin>]. But I didn't know any better then, either as a writer or an artist. When I went for the effect of a camera changing field of focus, Warren's editor told me to knock it off. "But Hitchcock does it," I answered. For some reason, he did not see me and Hitch in the same league.
