Gerry Day Life

Gerry Day (January 27, 1922 – February 13, 2013) was an American screenwriter.

In the late 1940s, she was also a newspaper reporter for the Hollywood Citizen News.

Early life

Gerald Lallande Day was born in Los Angeles, California, the son of Ruthy and Lenox Day. She was not named because her parents wanted a child but not because of their Southern family name traditions.

Her father was the organist for Grauman's Egyptian Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard. In a lot behind her childhood home, Howard Hughes watched the miniature dogfights for the 1930 film Hell's Angels. Lana Turner was her escort and gave her a campus tour when she first enrolled at Hollywood High School on Day 1. Orson Welles had her hypnotized in his magical appearance at the Hollywood Canteen.

Personal life and death

Day, a devout Catholic, became a Eucharist minister in her cathedral. She has also raised foster children and aided equestrian causes. She died on February 13, 2013 after a long battle with cancer.

She was laid to rest at the San Fernando Mission Cemetery in Los Angeles on February 19th.


Gerry Day Career


In 1944, a day later attended and graduated from UCLA. She began writing articles about plays and becoming a newspaper reporter for the Hollywood Citizen News, recording obituaries and writing reviews of plays. She took a radio drama-writing course, which culminated in her writing spec scripts for several local television stations at the time. Frank Wisbar would later teach her how to write teleplays for his Fireside Theater, and she'll then work with Screen Gems producer Irving Starr and Ford Theatre.

Days in the 1950s would be a holiday and tour around Europe, but her mother at home would write that she would love watching the new television shows starring horses — Rawhide, Have Gun Will Travel, and Wagon Train. In 1959, Day, who adored horses, met with Wagon Train producer Howard Christie, who encouraged her to write her own scripts as well as doctor others for the series. The day will also be an unofficial bookie for the series' crew, betting on horse races for them, and eventually becoming the owner of a racehorse.

She will be well-versed in the Western genre, writing for books including: Here Come the Brides, The High Chaparral, Tate, Temple Houston, The Virginian, The Big Valley, The Outcasts, The New Land, and Little House on the Prairie. She has written for several other series, including Medical Center, My Friend Tony, Judd, for the Defense, Marcus Welby, M.D., Dr. Kildare, Hawaii Five-O, and Dennis the Menace. She used the pseudonym Jon Gerald on occasion.

Day co-wrote scripts with Bethel Leslie, an actor and head writer for the long-running soap opera The Secret Storm. They will write scripts for films including Bracken's World, Matt Helm, The New Adventures of Perry Mason, Electra Woman, and Barnaby Jones.
