Not to be confused with British actor Paul Scofield (as has sometimes happened), American screenwriter Paul Schofield was in Hollywood from 1921 to 1939. While most of Schofield's silent film credits are forgettable, a few stand out: That Royle Girl (1926) represented the second and last collaboration between director D.W. Griffith and comedian W.C. Fields, while Fascinating Youth (1926) was designed to show off Paramount's latest crop of new contractees, among them such stars-to-be as Charles "Buddy" Rogers and Thelma Todd. His talkies tended to be B-pictures along the lines of the 1939 Tailspin Tommy entry Mystery Plane. One of Paul Schofield's few A-credits of the 1930s was the big-budget Paramount Western Wells Fargo (1937).
