[NOTE: THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL NOMINATION. Originally announced on February 15, 1954 as a nominee in this category. On February 17, 1954, letters from the producer and the nominee questioned its inclusion in the (original) motion picture story category, as it was based on the short story, “The Gift of Cochise,” by the nominee, published in Collier’s magazine on July 5, 1952. By waiver, the title of the short story was not included in the film’s credits. The nomination was withdrawn, and only four titles were included on the final ballot.]
