Best known for his screenplays for the Oscar-nominated "In Old Chicago" (1937; based on his novel "We the O'Learys") and "The Postman Always Rings Twice" (1946), Busch was also successful as a writer of psychological westerns, most notably "The Westerner" (1940), "Pursued" (1947), "Distant Drums" (1951) and "The Man from the Alamo" (1953). His 1944 novel "Duel in the Sun" was made into an overwrought, lavish box-office success by King Vidor in 1947.
