Yellow Jack is a 1934 play and a 1938 Hollywood movie, both co-written by Sidney Howard and Paul de Kruif (the former a Pulitzer- and Oscar-winning playwright and screenwriter; the latter a well-known microbiologist and author).

The plot line followed the true story of the famous "Walter Reed Boards" in which Major Walter Reed of the U.S. Army heroically pursued the conquest of yellow fever (called “yellow jack”) in Cuba in 1898-1900. The play and screenplay were adapted for television by Celanese Theatre (1952) and Producers' Showcase (1955), in episodes both again titled “Yellow Jack”.
