Beginning his career as a gagman in silent two-reel comedies, American screenwriter Ernest Pagano graduated to features in 1928. During the talkie era, Pagano was a particular favorite of song-and-dance man Fred Astaire, who loved to incorporate slapstick set pieces in his films. Pagano contributed to the overall ebullience of such Astaire starrers as Shall We Dance (1937), A Damsel in Distress (1937), Carefree (1936), You'll Never Get Rich (1941), and You Were Never Lovelier (1942). Ernest Pagano later produced and wrote the Universal A-productions Lover Come Back (1946) and Slave Girl (1947), both chock-full of gratuitous (but amusing) physical comedy.
