Ring W. Lardner, Jr., who in 1947 refused to answer the HUAC concerning his membership in the Communist Party and served ten months of his one-year sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut. Released from prison, Lardner left Hollywood and survived the blacklist by writing under pseudonyms. In 1970 he again won an Oscar for M*A*S*H, as he had in 1942, for best screenplay.
