American playwright Percy Heath is best remembered for his sophisticated crime-caper theatrical piece Slightly Scarlet, filmed in 1915 as Blackbirds and in 1930 under its own title. A regular Hollywood contributor from 1920 to 1933, Heath specialized in timely jazz-age comedies. When sound came in, he worked primarily on musicals and gangster films. Percy Heath shared an Oscar nomination for his scriptwork on 1931's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
