John Taintor Foote (1881-1950)
American author, playwright and screenwriter. Born in Colorado. He began his writing career by penning sporting stories. His novels largely featured fishing, and he also wrote a few dog novels. His horse stories were of the racing type and many featured a colourful rogue called 'Blister Jones.' These Blister Jones stories were collected into a book to form his first novel.
Foote moved to Hollywood in the 1930s and wrote a number of film scripts, including the 1949 film The Story of Seabiscuit. The famous Hitchcock film Notorious was also based on one of his stories.« less
