Aben Kandel

Aben Kandel (15 August 1897 - 28 January 1993) was an American screenwriter, novelist, and (earlier in life) boxer. He was screenwriter on such classic B movies as I was A Teen-Age Werewolf, Joan Crawford's final movie Trog, and one of Leonard Nimoy's first starring vehicles, Kid Monk Baroni. Kandel had an earlier scandalous success with his gritty, b-grade Hollywood novel City for Conquest (1936), which was made into a James Cagney feature in 1940.
