American screenwriter Joseph Jackson joined Warner Bros. in 1928 as title-writer for the semi-talkie Tenderloin (1928). Jackson went on to provide dialogue and continuity for such Warners' productions as Al Jolson's The Singing Fool (1928), John Barrymore's Man from Blakeney's (1931) and the shyster-lawyer opus The Mouthpiece (1932). In 1931, he shared an Academy Award nomination for his contributions to the Edward G. Robinson-James Cagney starred Smart Money (1931). Joseph Jackson's final credit was the 1932 political satire The Dark Horse.
