• Budd Schulberg, who wrote the screenplays for “On The Waterfront” and “A Face In The Crowd,” as well as the immortal novel “What Makes Sammy Run?”, died yesterday at age 95.

Schulberg also was a boxing aficionado and chronicler of the sport; in 1947 he wrote a book called “The Harder They Fall,” a fictionalized expose, which was turned into a 1955 film that was Humphrey Bogart’s last movie.
