Was a TV writer from 1955 on using the alias 'Dave Barclay.'


In 1954 he made a TV pilot called "Meet the O'Briens'", in which he played a bumbling young husband whose in-laws live with him and his wife. It wasn't picked up.


In 1950 Pete Smith and O'Brien received a special award at the White House from President Harry S. Truman for one of their shorts, Wrong Way Butch (1950).


Around 1940 he and James Newill became partners in a ranch in Topanga Canyon, CA. It was too far to commute to the studio, so the Newills and O'Briens spent alternating weekends there.


First wife Dorothy Short was a "B" actress in westerns and appeared with Dave in the cult classic Reefer Madness (1936) (original title "Tell Your Children" but better known as "Reefer Madness"), the serial Captain Midnight (1942) and the Pete Smith shorts, among others. They had two children but divorced in the early 1950s, reportedly because of Dave's complete devotion to sailing and his love of the sea. He subsequently remarried and had three more children.


An all-round jack-of-all-trades in the entertainment business, Dave started off as a dancer and chorus boy in Warner Bros. musicals (42nd Street (1933), among others). He was also a stuntman and villain in westerns, although he did star in a series as a Texas Ranger. He was also a stalwart hero of cliffhangers and rugged adventure (Captain Midnight (1942), The Rangers Take Over (1942)). In addition, he composed songs for some of his western programmers and wrote, directed (as David Barclay) and starred in a popular and long-running series of comedy shorts made by producer Pete Smith at MGM. As if that weren't enough, he turned to TV as a writer for Red Skelton and won an Emmy.
