Career

Born and raised in Evansville, Indianamarker, Osborn went on to study at Yalemarker. He made his debut in 1928 with the play Hotbed. In 1930, he found success on Broadway with The Vinegar Tree. His 1939 original comedic play, Morning's at Seven became one of Osborn's most enduring original works. It has been presented on television, but never filmed. Revived in 1980, it would be hailed by Harold Clurman as "one of the best American comedies."

Another popular, more frequently revived Osborn play is the 1938 On Borrowed Time, which was made into a famous MGM film starring Lionel Barrymore, Cedric Hardwicke and Bobs Watson.
