George Moore Scarborough (1875 – 1951) was a lawyer, playwright, and author whose works appeared on stage and screen.

He was born in Mount Carmel, Texas and studied at Baylor University and University of Texas.[1] He became a lawyer at his father's firm before deciding to write for the theater and moving to New York after his father's death in 1905.[2]

While hunting for a prodicer for his work he served as a newspaperman and Secret Service agent. He later used those experiences in his stories.

His Broadway plays include such successes as The Lure (1913), At Bay (1913), The Heart of Wetona (1916), Moonlight and Honeysuckle (1919), and The Son-Daughter (1919), Mrs. Hope's Husband (1921), The Heaven Tappers (1926), The Girl I Loved (1929), and The Moon of Honey (1929).[3] Several of his works were adapted to film.

His sister Dorothy Scarborough was a novelist and musicologist.[4][5]
