American writer/director Monte Brice kept busy in the 1920s as a comedy-movie gag man. One of Brice's most prestigious writing credits was the classic 1927 Raymond Griffith comedy Hands Up. Dabbling in directing, Brice helmed the raucous Wallace Beery baseball vehicle Casey at the Bat (1927) and the early-talkie W.C. Fields short subject The Golf Specialist. In the 1940s, Brice was writer or co-writer of such big-budget musicals as Pot o' Gold (1941), The Fleet's In (1944) and Variety Girl (1947), and also labored away in the Columbia "B"-musical mills. He ended his days as a career advisor to comedian Bob Hope. While reminiscing on his Hollywood years with film historian Kevin Brownlow, Monte Brice wistfully observed that "the parade's gone by"--a phrase that ultimately served as the title for the first of Brownlow's books on the silent-movie era.
