A typical Hollywood professional, screenwriter C. Graham Baker had been a newspaper reporter prior to entering films in 1914 writing farces for Vitagraph's rotund comedian John Bunny. Baker later supplied stories and/or scenarios for Inspirational, Fox, and Universal and, using the pseudonym of Leslie S. Barrows, penned Warner Bros.' 1928 part-talkie The Singing Fool, a major hit for Al Jolson. Equally busy in the sound era, Baker later both produced and wrote such juvenile fare as Swiss Family Robinson (1940), Little Men (1940), and Tom Brown's School Days (1940), and penned two above-average Westerns, Ramrod (1947) and Four Faces West (1948).
