A^ : During pre-production on Lawrence of Arabia, producer Sam Spiegel and director David Lean were unhappy with Michael Wilson's original screenplay, so Spiegel asked playwright Robert Bolt to rewrite the script, as Spiegel wanted to get the film rights of Bolt's play A Man for All Seasons. Bolt found the script lacking in good dialogue and also character depth. He essentially wrote the whole script, using T.E. Lawrence's book, The Seven Pillars of Wisdom, as his starting point. While Bolt rewrote the whole script, he still retained the characterization of all of the characters found in Wilson's original script. It was decided that Bolt would be credited as the sole writer of Lawrence of Arabia and not Wilson, because he was blacklisted at the time. The nomination for Wilson was granted on September 26, 1995, by the Academy Board of Directors, after research at the WGA found that the then-blacklisted writer shared the screenwriting credit with Bolt.
