American librettist/lyricist Jack Yellen was one of many Broadway-ites who migrated to Hollywood when talkies arrived. Before settling at Fox Studios, Yellen wrote lyrics and special material for such early musicals as MGM's They Learned About Women (1930) and Universal's King of Jazz (1930). At Fox he scripted and/or penned lyrics for Shirley Temple (Captain January, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm) and was one of the principal contributors to the studio's brace of Walter Winchell vehicles, Love Is News and Wake up and Live (1937). Jack Yellen's final film credit was the satirical college musical Hold That Co-Ed (1938).
