Alfred Hayes (18 April 1911 – 14 August 1985) was a British-born screenwriter, television writer, novelist, and poet, who worked in Italy and the United States. His well-known poem about "Joe Hill" ("I dreamed I saw Joe Hill last night") was set to music by Earl Robinson, and performed by Pete Seeger, Joan Baez and many other artists.


Life



Born in Whitechapel, London to a Jewish family that moved to the United States when he was three, Hayes graduated from New York's City College (now part of City University of New York), worked briefly as a newspaper reporter, and began writing fiction and poetry in the 1930s. During World War II he served in Europe in the U.S. Army Special Services (the "morale division"). Afterwards, he stayed in Rome and became a screenwriter of Italian neorealist films. As a co-writer on Roberto Rossellini's Paisan (1946), he was nominated for an Academy Award; he received another Academy Award nomination for Teresa (1951). He adapted his own novel The Girl on the Via Flaminia into a play; in 1953 it was adapted into a French-language film Un acte d'amour.

He was an uncredited co-writer of Vittorio De Sica's neorealist film Bicycle Thieves (1948) for which he also wrote the English language subtitles.

Among his U.S. filmwriting credits are The Lusty Men (1952, directed by Nicholas Ray) and the film adaptation of the Maxwell Anderson/Kurt Weill musical Lost in the Stars (1974). His credits as a television scriptwriter included scripts for American series Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Twilight Zone, Nero Wolfe and Mannix.

    Entrevista a Litto Nebbia (I)

    por Manel Gausachs el 15/10/2018

    Litto Nebbia actuó el pasado 18 de mayo en Barcelona dentro de una pequeña gira española de cuatro conciertos en pequeños locales. Aprovechamos la ocasión para hablar con él poco antes de cumplir los 70. En esta primera entrega de la entrevista, que publicamos en dos partes, hablamos con detalle de seis de los siete discos que ha publicado en estos últimos tres años. Seis obras de géneros muy diferentes que demuestran, una vez más, que Nebbia trasciende los límites del Rock y del relato juvenil que se le adjudicó en sus inicios. En la segunda entrega, que publicaremos próximamente, hablaremos de su faceta como productor, de su nueva autobiografía Mi banda sonora y de lo cerca y lejos que está a la vez entre sí todo el mundo hispánico de la música.
