The son of mogul Jack L. Warner, Jack M. Warner had a short-lived career as a movie producer at his father's studio. The younger Warner produced his first film, The Hasty Heart in 1949. Before that, Warner, an alumni of the University of Southern California, was working at the Warner Brothers Studio short-subject department in Burbank, California. He also worked with the studio's distribution company. Warner only produced a handful of films during the '50s. In 1958, he and his father had bitter arguments over his father's divorce of the younger Warner's mother and they became estranged. Many years later, Warner published a novel Bijou Dreams, that loosely recounted his relationship with his father.
