Don Marquis was a renowned newspaper columnist, journalist and novelist of America. Some of his books include “Cruise of the Jasper B”, “Pandora Lifts the Lid” and so on. As a skilled humorist, he introduced popular characters like Archy the cockroach and Mehitabel the Alley Cat to express his opinion on various issues in a humorous way. In an attempt to ridicule the U.S. Constitution’s amendment regarding prohibition of sale and consumption of alcoholic products, he created the character of Old Soak through his “Sun Dial” column of “The Evening Sun” newspaper. This specific column became popular for its perfect combination of quips, commentary and humorous verse. Through this column, he ridiculed several personalities of that era. The character of Old Soak became so popular that a Broadway play was made on it. Moreover, this fictional character acted as an inspiration for a silent film, “talkie” and a radio drama. He became a finalist for three times for the O. Henry Memorial Prize for his remarkable creation of short fiction. As author of 35 books, he co-wrote for the films like ‘The Spots Pages’, ‘Shinbone Alley’, ‘The Good Old Soak’ and ‘Skippy’. The story of the film ‘The Cruise of the Jasper B’ is loosely based on one of his novels.
