Obituary: Richard Collins

Screenwriter Richard Collins (b.1914) died on February 14. Collins wrote the scripts for Cult of the Cobra, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and and episode of the Planet of the Apes television series. His greatest fame, however, may be from his testimony in front of the House Unamerican Activities Committee, in which he admitted being a former Communist Party member and named friends who had been active in the party.
