Silverstein was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to Nathan Silverstein and Minnie Grobstein. His parents were Jewish Russian immigrants.

Silverstein served in the military during World War I,[2] and he worked as a journalist before beginning his career in Hollywood.[3] His first credit as a scenario writer came in 1932 with the release of Hatta Marri. He would go on to write 24 films over the course of his career.

Silverstein joined the Army Signal Corps during World War II in 1941; he joined other Columbia scenarists in writing training films at the Film Lab in Fort Monmouth, New Jersey.[4] He died of injuries received in action in 1944, and was awarded a Purple Heart posthumously.[5] He was survived by his wife, Alice, and their son.[6][7]
