Holding an L.L.B. degree from Boston and an L.L.M. from Harvard, Oscar Brodney was a lawyer before entering the film industry in 1935. Brodney's screenwriting career went into drive at Universal in the early '40s. Particularly adept at comedy, Brodney worked on Abbott and Costello's Mexican Hayride (1948), the 1950 adaptation of Mary Chase's Harvey (1950), two of Universal's Francis the Talking Mule series, and all three of the studio's Tammy films. In 1954, he earned an Academy Award nomination for The Glenn Miller Story. Switching to producing in the late '50s, Brodney called the shots on the British Bobbykins (1959) and The Right Approach (1960), as well as 20th Century Fox's All Hands on Deck (1961). Oscar Brodney's last screenwriting project to date is the tepid British exploitation quickie 1,000 Convicts and a Woman (aka Fun and Games, 1971).
