A graduate of Harvard, Harry Behn dabbled in community theater prior to entering films as a writer in 1923. Chiefly associated with director King Vidor, Behn contributed screenplays for some of the late silent era's greatest works, including The Big Parade (1925) and The Crowd. He collaborated with Howard Hughes on the silent version of Hell's Angels (1930) and supplied continuity for the talkie Secrets of the Chateau (1934). He continued his association with Vidor and even delivered the theme song for The Texas Rangers (1936), co-written with Sam Coslow.
