Other Literary Forms
In addition to more than three hundred plays, Owen Davis wrote a radio series entitled The Gibson Family (1934), which lasted for thirty-nine weeks. He was also a screenwriter in Hollywood, where his work included Icebound (1924), How Baxter Butted In (1925), Frozen Justice (1929), and Hearts in Exile (1929).
In 1930, dissatisfied with Hollywood and its exploitation of the writer, Davis returned to writing for the stage. In 1931, he published a volume of autobiography, I’d Like to Do It Again; he updated his life story in 1950 with My First Fifty Years in the Theatre.
