  • FIFTIES
  • 1957
    Age 59
    White worked at Columbia until the comedy shorts unit closed on December 20, 1957.
    More Details Hide Details Jack White was married to silent-film actress Pauline Starke; the marriage was unhappy and they divorced in the mid-1930s. Starke's lawyers pressured White, prompting White to adopt the "Preston Black" pseudonym to avoid further harassment.
  • 1951
    Age 53
    He rejoined the unit briefly in the early 1940s before serving in the military, then returned to Columbia for good in 1951.
    More Details Hide Details During the 1950s, rising production costs forced Columbia to economize, and reuse sequences from older pictures. Jules White called upon Jack White to write new scripts that plausibly incorporated scenes from some other movie. Jack's biggest challenge was probably the Stooge short Scheming Schemers (released 1956), for which he not only had to insert old scenes from three older Stooge shorts, but he had to write around the absence of co-star Shemp Howard, who had died in 1955. Jack's creative ideas cleverly hid the patchwork; according to Columbia director Edward Bernds, neither audiences nor exhibitors ever noticed the old footage in the new comedies.
  • THIRTIES
  • 1937
    Age 39
    Jack's first Stooges film was Ants in the Pantry; he worked in Columbia's shorts department through 1937.
