A graduate of Bucknell University, Albert S. LeVino began his professional career as a foreign correspondent in Washington, D.C., and was later a reporter for the New York Times and the New York American. A short story writer and a staff member at various times with Colliers, Harper's Bazaar, and Leslie's, LeVino entered films in the early 1910s and later became a staff writer for Metro. Often penning Westerns and action melodramas, LeVino would also deliver scripts for such disparate films as Cappy Ricks (1921), Zaza (1923), and the early sound film The Canary Murder Case (1929). Less busy in the sound era, LeVino's final script seems to have been for Tombstone, the Town to Tough to Die, a 1942 Paramount Western co-written with Edward E. Paramore. A LeVino short story was filmed in 1958 as Westbound, a starring vehicle for Randolph Scott.
