Yet another Carl Laemmle relative, American writer Isadore Bernstein became "Uncle" Carl's general manager and was a significant player in the transformation of the former Taylor chicken ranch into the sprawling studio complex known as Universal City. That was back in 1915, and Bernstein spent the following years mainly as a screenwriter with the company's many western units. Bernstein wrote for all the studio's western stars, including Jack Hoxie (The Man from Wyoming, 1924), Art Acord (Loco Luck, 1927), and Hoot Gibson (The Rawhide Kid,1928), often in collaboration with Arthur F. Statter. He continued working well into the '30s but there were few job offers after "Uncle" Carl lost his company in 1936. Bernstein quit films the following year and spent his remaining years as production manager for an oil tool company.
