Monte Brice Biography

  • Profession: Screenwriter, Screen Story, Director
  • Born: Jan 1, 1890
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

American writer/director Monte Brice kept busy in the 1920s as a comedy-movie gag man. One of Brice's most prestigious writing credits was the classic 1927 [[Performer~P92603~Raymond Griffith~raymondgriffith]] comedy [[Feature~V21385~Hands Up~handsup]]. Dabbling in directing, Brice helmed the raucous [[Performer~P4986~Wallace Beery~wallacebeery]] baseball vehicle [[Feature~V86796~Casey at the Bat~caseyatthebat]] (1927) and the early-talkie W.C. Fields short subject [[Feature~V137766~The Golf Specialist.~thegolfspecialist]] In the 1940s, Brice was writer or co-writer of such big-budget musicals as [[Feature~V38851~Pot o' Gold~potogold]] (1941), [[Feature~V91706~The Fleet's In~thefleetsin]] (1944) and [[Feature~V115442~Variety Girl~varietygirl]] (1947), and also labored away in the Columbia "B"-musical mills. He ended his days as a career advisor to comedian Bob Hope. While reminiscing on his Hollywood years with film historian Kevin Brownlow, Monte Brice wistfully observed that "the parade's gone by"--a phrase that ultimately served as the title for the first of Brownlow's books on the silent-movie era. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
