Late American screenwriter Richard Schayer was one of the most prolific and versatile scenarists in Hollywood from the silent period through the early '30s. Schayer, the son of an Army officer, had always been interested in acting and so studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, New York, before beginning a four-year career in stock theater. Later, he began studying journalism and worked as a reporter for major daily papers in New York, Chicago, and Washington. Following a stint in the military during WWI, Schayer began writing for movies. Though he worked in all genres, most of his films were undistinguished actioners. His career reached its apex in the late '20s while he was churning out scripts for the comedies of Buster Keaton. At this time, he also created some notable dramas.
