In 1933, Bright was among 10 writers who founded the Screen Writers Guild.
As a 13-year-old, Bright worked at the Chicago Daily News, where he was the office boy for Ben Hecht.
Bright met his writing partner, Kubec Glasmon, at the drugstore where Bright worked as a soda jerk. Glasmon owned the drugstore, which was a hangout for many of Chicago's most notorious gangsters. It was there Bright met Al Capone. Bright was present at a banquet at Chicago's Commonwealth Hotel when Capone ordered the murder of two attending Mafiosi who had displeased him. The men were immediately beaten to death with baseball bats in front of Bright, an incident later dramatized in Brian DePalma's "The Untouchables."
