American screenwriter Richard Flournoy was typed as a comedy specialist from his first Hollywood efforts, Hal Roach's Pick a Star, onward. Signed by Columbia in 1938, Flournoy worked on the first eight "Blondie" pictures, and also helped fashion Go West Young Lady (1941), a rare non-"Blondie" assignment for actress Penny Singleton. Promoted to "A" pictures in 1942, Flournoy went on to win an Academy Award nomination for his contributions to George Stevens' The More the Merrier. Leaving Hollywood in 1945 to pursue non-film projects, Richard Flournoy returned to Tinseltown in 1953 to co-write the old-fashioned RKO romantic comedy She Couldn't Say No.
