Internet Obituary Network, Obituary for Edward Anhalt, Screenwriter (566 words)
Anhalt's 1950 film noir, "Panic in the Streets" starring Richard Widmark as a doctor trying to help police capture a plague-infected killer before he can pass on the disease to others gave Anhalt a box office hit with a big star, and a bigger reward: his first Oscar.
Anhalt was one of the few high-profile writers of the era to emerge from the McCarthy proceedings unscathed, and while he may have been critical of the anti-communist censure, his body of work at the time revealed him to be critical, but cautious.
Anhalt was an exceptionally flexible writer, easily moving from period drama, like his Oscar-winner, "Becket", to 1960s farce with the Jerry Lewis-Tony Curtis comedy "Boeing, Boeing" and thrillers like the tense "The Boston Strangler", which starred Henry Fonda in a story based on the infamous Albert DeSalvo serial killings.
