Between 1947 and 1964 comedy writer Jack Rose averaged about one produced script per year. Some of his best-loved films include The Road to Rio (1947) -- the first of a popular series of "Road" movies starring Bob Hope and Bing Crosby -- A Touch of Class (1973) and The Great Muppet Caper. Rose was closely affiliated with comedian Bob Hope's movie career, having provided the beloved funnyman with scripts for such films as The Paleface (1948), Sorrowful Jones (1949) and The Seven Little Foys (1955) which Rose penned with director Melvin Shavelson. The latter film also marked Rose's first time as a producer. Born the youngest of 13 children in Warsaw, Poland, Rose and his siblings were raised in Brooklyn. Following his graduation from Ohio University, Rose worked as a New York press agent. His first show business writing was for hot young comedian Milton Berle. In the '40s, Rose headed to California to become a comedy writer for Bob Hope's radio show. After the success of The Seven Little Foys, Rose and Shavelson became writing and producing partners. In 1951, Rose was nominated for the screenplay of I'll See You in My Dreams.
