Biography

American screenwriter John W. Krafft entered films in 1928 when his novel Apache Rising, a story of the Parisian demimonde, was adapted for the screen as Show Folk. Krafft was steadily employed as a title writer, remaining in this capacity even after talkies had taken hold; he composed titles for the silent versions of such early sound productions as RKO's Leathernecking (1930). He moved on to the low-budget Monogram operation in 1933, remaining there for nine years, except during the twelve months in 1936 and 1937 when the studio was shut down for reorganization. John W. Krafft's final film credit was Republic's 1943 version of James Fennimore Cooper's The Deerslayer.
