Chic Johnson

  1. Pat O’Brien, Boy Meets Girl,  1938.       A perfect notion from Warners – Olsen & Johnson, Broadway’s comedy stars playing songwriters making a star of Marion Davies. The lunatic duo, however,  was tied up on-stage. A quick re-write made it the fifth James Cagney-Pat O’Brien  movie  –  playing  screenwriters with Marie Wilson (Marion having passed) as the waitress with star potential. Olsen & Johnson made seven farces, including their classic version of their Broadway triumph, Hellzapoppin’, in 1941.
