From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Paul Jarrico (January 12, 1915 – October 28, 1997) was an American screenwriter and film producer who was blacklisted by the Hollywood movie studio bosses during the era of McCarthyism.

Jarrico was born in Los Angeles, California where he wrote his first script that was made into a 1938 film called No Time to Marry.

While blacklisted, Jarrico produced Salt of the Earth, a fictionalized account of a real strike by zinc miners in Grant County, New Mexico. The movie was written by Michael Wilson and directed by Herbert Biberman, both of whom had also been blacklisted by Hollywood. The film has been deemed "culturally significant" by the United States Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. The film has also been preserved by the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

He would eventually play a major role in the successful restoration of official screen credits for other blacklisted Hollywood filmmakers.

Paul Jarrico died in 1997 in an automobile accident in Los Angeles.
