Cormack, Bartlett


Cormack, Bartlett
(1898-1942)
   Hammond, Indiana-born Bartlett Cormack was educated at the University of Chicago before embarking on a journalistic career. He became involved in little theatre there, where his only successful play, The Racket (1927), encountered attempts to ban it. The play had a solid Broadway run, but Cormack spent most of his working life as a press agent and motion picture screenwriter with screenplay credits including The Front Page (1931), Fury (1936), and Sidewalks of London (1938).
