About James F. O'Hanlon

The older brother of comic actor George O'Hanlon (1917-1989), screenwriter James O'Hanlon entered films when his novel Over My Dead Body was adapted for the screen in 1942. James' subsequent script credits ran the gamut from family comedy (Sally and Saint and Anne) to musicals (Calamity Jane) to sci-fi (Destination Moon, Conquest of Space). In the early '60s, O'Hanlon collaborated with his brother, George, as a scripter for such Warner Bros. TV series as 77 Sunset Strip and Gallant Men, as well as the theatrical feature For Those Who Think Young (1964). At the time of his death in the early '70s, James O'Hanlon was working on a pilot for a TV weekly based on the Three Musketeers. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
