Herb Meadow was in the screenwriting business for over 60 years and worked on both feature films and television. He may best be remembered as the co-creator of the '60s western series Have Gun Will Travel. Meadow started out as an announcer on Brooklyn radio station WMIL. It was screenwriter/director Mervyn LeRoy who suggested that Meadow go to Hollywood and it was LeRoy who gave the young writer his first chore: to pen the first screenplay for The Robe (1953). After that, Meadow churned out a dozen more scripts. Those screenplays include the Errol Flynn vehicle Master of Ballantrae (1953) and Everything But the Truth (1956), starring Maureen O'Hara. Meadow became a straight television writer after Have Gun Will Travel. Other programs that he developed include Movin' On.
