Guy Bolton

Guy Reginald Bolton (November 23, 1884 - September 6, 1979) was a British-American playwright and writer of musical comedies.

Born Guy Reginald Bolton to American parents in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, England, Bolton studied architecture before beginning his writing career in 1914 with the play "The Rule of Three". Additional plays include "The Fallen Idol", "Nobody Home", "Children", "Polly with a Past", "The Five Million", "Adam and Eva", "The Cave Girl", "Polly Preferred", "Chicken Feed", "Grounds for Divorce", "Golden Wings", "Child of Fortune", and "Anastasia", the 1956 screen adaptation of which starred Ingrid Bergman.

In 1915 Bolton made his first foray into musical theatre with "90 in the Shade" with Jerome Kern. His extensive Broadway musical credits include "Very Good Eddie", "Oh, Boy!", "Have a Heart", "Sitting Pretty", and "Sally" with Jerome Kern, "Anything Goes" with Cole Porter, "Rosalie", "Lady Be Good", "Tip-Toes", "Oh, Kay!" with P.G. Wodehouse, and "Girl Crazy" with George Gershwin, "Anya" with George Abbott, "Ankles Aweigh" with Sammy Fain, "Rio Rita", and "Follow the Girls".

Bolton's screen credits include "Week-End at the Waldorf", "Till the Clouds Roll By", and "Ziegfeld Follies".

Bolton and P. G. Wodehouse co-authored the autobiographical "Bring on the Girls", a chronicle of their Broadway experiences. Bolton was married four times. His second wife was opera singer Marguerite Namara; their daughter Peggy, who died in 2003, was his last surviving child.
