American screenwriter Jack McGowan came to films in 1933 from Broadway, where he'd written special comedy material for several "book" musicals and reviews. After collaborating on the script of Paramount's Sitting Pretty (1933), he moved to MGM, where he'd spend the rest of his movie career. He contributed gags and storylines to such big-budget MGM musicals as Born to Dance (1936), Babes in Arms (1939), Little Nellie Kelly (1940), Girl Crazy (1943) and Broadway Rhythm (1944). Jack McGowan also co-wrote the 1936, 1938 and 1940 editions of MGM's Broadway Melody series.
