Dr. Daniel Carson Goodman was an American screenwriter and licensed physician, who wrote the storyline for 28 silent films – the first of them was Sapho. He worked as miscellaneous crew in three films, produced two films and directed one film, Thoughtless Women. He also achieved notoriety after the banning of a book he had written called "Hagar Revelly," originally published in 1913. It became the subject of a lawsuit, United States v. Kennerley. Goodman was apparently a licensed doctor in addition to his involvement in movie production. In 1924 he was embroiled in what became a scandal as producer Thomas Ince died under mysterious circumstances after a party aboard William Randolph Hearst's yacht the Oneida. Goodman treated and accompanied a dying Ince to shore where physicians could attend him. Ince however died before reaching the hospital. He was engaged to marry the actress Florence La Badie. In August 1917 they were involved in a car accident; Goodman escaped with minor injuries, but La Badie suffered more severe injuries and died several weeks later from a resulting infection.
