The Writers Guild of America will correct the credits on 24 films written during the blacklist era, replacing pseudonyms or “fronts” with the true writers of the pics.

Including the latest corrections, the guild has changed the credits on 34 pictures from the McCarthy era, relying on deal memos, production records and the writers and fronts themselves for evidence.

Many of the movies — ranging from classics such as “Inherit the Wind” and “The Robe” to lesser-known titles such as “Zombies of Mara Tau” — were made or developed during the height of the blacklist era in the 1950s and early ’60s.

But the list of movies that will be changed includes several pics — such as “Born Free” (1966) and “Pancho Villa” (1971) — that were released after the blacklist started to crumble in the early 1960s. But, the guild noted, some writers continued to use an assumed name, “since there was no official end to the blacklist.”

The guild will change the credits in its record, and will urge studios to make the changes in the release of pictures in the theater or on homevideo, or in some new format. Columbia so far is the first to change credits, on a release of “Lawrence of Arabia,” which adds Michael Wilson’s name as a screenwriter.

“We will immediately begin the research necessary to identify the current rights holders of the films and are very pleased that the industry has indicated a definite interest to work with us to find an industry-wide approach to rectify these sad and unfortunate actions of the past,” said Brian Walton, executive director of the Writers Guild of America West.

The guild’s blacklist credits committee includes Del Reisman and George Kirgo, both past presidents, and Paul Jarrico, himself a blacklisted writer and producer.

Writer Jean Rouveral Butler, blacklisted along with her husband, Hugo Butler, expressed satisfaction at having the credits changed after almost half century. Her husband’s name was restored to several pictures, and both of their names were restored to “Autumn Leaves.”

Butler said that she and her husband wrote another pic, “The First Time” (1952), which has not yet been changed but could come up in the committee’s future work.

“It is very gratifying, I have to tell you,” Butler said. “When you can’t use your name it really is an awful thing.”
