Best Writing (Adapted)- 1961

Actual Nominations: Judgement At Nuremberg- Abby Mann. Breakfast At Tiffany’s- George Axelrod. The Guns Of Navarone- Carl Foreman. The Hustler- Sidney Carroll, Robert Rossen. West Side Story- Ernest Lehman.

My Winner: The real winner was the tense Judgement At Nuremberg, but my choice from the actual nominations is Breakfast At Tiffany’s.

Breakfast At Tiffany’s

My Nominations: Breakfast At Tiffany’s. The Guns Of Navarone. The Hustler. The Pit And The Pendulum- Richard Matheson. The Innocents William Archibald, Truman Capote, John Mortimer.

My Winner: Close between The Pit And The Pendulum and The Innocents, and as much as I love Matheson, I think The Innocents edges this one. Dreary, deep,creeping, ugly stuff from Capote and William Archibald

The Innocents
