George S. Brooks (1895–1961) was an American playwright, author and journalist. Having fought in the First World War, Brooks later became a journalist for the Rochester Herald, a New York state newspaper. After becoming the managing editor of McCLure's magazine, Brooks wrote his first play, Spread Eagle, in tandem with Henry Clune, which was first produced on Broadway in 1927. Briefly contracted to Fox Film Company, three films of his were made: Big News, The Three Sisters and Double Cross Roads.
