A stage juvenile from Ohio who had appeared opposite Robert Hilliard and Virginia Pearson in A Fool There Was, Curtis Benton broke into films when some of his short stories were purchased by the Victor company in 1915. Mainly an actor in the 1910s, he turned to screenwriting in the 1920s, penning such programmers as W.S. Van Dyke's Half-a-Dollar Bill (1924) and Hoot Gibson's The Phantom Bullet (1926). Benton went into radio announcing after the changeover to sound.
