Novelist and screenwriter Budd Schulberg has died at age 95. The Los Angeles Times reports that Schulberg's writing career spanned more than six decades, during which he wrote novels, short stories, screenplays, plays, teleplays and nonfiction books with a strong social conscience. In 1941, at age 27, he burst onto the literary scene with What Makes Sammy Run, a novel portraying amoral hustler Sammy Glick's rise to power in Hollywood. The name Sammy Glick, according to the Times, has since become synonymous with "ruthless ambition." Schulberg's best-known works also included the screenplay for On the Waterfront, a film about the mob-controlled longshoremen's union; the 1947 novel The Harder They Fall, later adapted into a 1956 movie starring Humphrey Bogart in his final role; and the screenplay for A Face in the Crowd, starring Andy Griffith in his movie debut.
