Helen Logan began her screenwriting career in 1935, with Fox Pictures and stayed with them until she stopped writing in 1946. Along the way she penned a few film-series (Charlie Chan, The Jones Family and The Cisco Kid), spending the better part of the 1930’s writing B-pictures.
In the 1940’s Logan moved up to A-films; working with such actresses as Betty Grable, Sonja Henie, Carmen Miranda, Vivian Blaine, and Alice Faye. As I look back over the films that she wrote, I feel quite sentimental, because these are the movies I grew up watching on TV on Saturday afternoons. Many of these are the staples of film-fun. With that said, I think her best work (and most recognizable) came in 1944 with ‘Four Jills in a Jeep”.
