RKO's Meanest Gal in Town is the first recorded credit for American screenwriter Arthur T. Horman. After spending the mid-1930s with Columbia's "B" unit, Horman free-lanced at several studios, writing for performers as varied as the Ritz Brothers (Argentine Nights), Jack Oakie (Navy Blues), Abbott & Costello (Buck Privates). His 1940s endeavors included the tongue-in-cheek Errol Flynn war adventure Desperate Journey (1942) and the lighthearted detective yarn The Runaround (1945). After a long absence from the screen, Arthur T. Horman resurfaced in 1958 as scripter of the Republic juvenile-delinquent quickie Young and Wild.
