Horace McCoy's talent for screenwriting gave him a Hollywood career. McCoy's career beginnings can be traced back to writing for films such as "Fury of the Jungle" (1933), "Dangerous Crossroads" (1933) and "Parole!" (1936). He also appeared in "King of the Newsboys" (1938) and the Akim Tamiroff dramatic adaptation "Dangerous to Know" (1938). In the latter half of his career, McCoy wrote the Susan Hayward drama "The Lusty Men" (1952), the Jane Russell western "Montana Belle" (1952) and the drama "Bad For Each Other" (1954) with Charlton Heston. He also appeared in the Victor Mature crime flick "Dangerous Mission" (1954). McCoy was most recently credited in "Un Linceul n'a pas de poches" (1974) with Jean-Pierre Mocky. McCoy passed away in December 1955 at the age of 58.
