A busy magazine contributor in the 1920s, Chicago-born writer Robert Lord entered movies through the back door when his story "The Lucky Horseshoe" was made into a film in 1925. One year later, Lord secured his niche in the Hollywood firmament with his screenplay for the elaborate Universal "disaster" epic The Johnstown Flood (1926). Beginning with the early days of talkies, Lord was often employed by Warner Bros., an association that lasted until 1941's Dive Bomber, and which won him a Best Original Screenplay Oscar in 1932 for One Way Passage. Humphrey Bogart fans will recognize Robert Lord as Bogart's business partner in Santana Productions, the independent firm responsible for such films as Knock on Any Door (1949), Tokyo Joe (1949), In a Lonely Place (1950) and Sirocco (1951).
