Anita Loos Rediscovered by Anita Loos
Book DescriptionAnita Loos (1888-1981) was one of Hollywood's most respected and prolific screenwriters, as well as an acclaimed novelist and playwright. This unique collection of previously unpublished film treatments, short stories, and one-act plays spans fifty years of her creative writing and showcases the breadth and depth of her talent. Beginning in 1912 with the stories she submitted from her San Diego home (some made into films by D.W. Griffith), through her collaboration with Colette on the play "Gigi", Anita Loos wrote almost every day for the screen, stage, books, or magazines. Film scripts include "San Francisco", "The Women", and "Red-Headed Woman". The list of stars for whom she created unforgettable roles includes Mary Pickford, Jean Harlow, Clark Gable, Audrey Hepburn, and Carol Channing. This collection has been selected by Anita's niece and close friend, the best-selling author Mary Anita Loos, together with the acclaimed film historian Cari Beauchamp. Their essays are laced throughout the volume, introducing each section and giving previously untold insights and behind-the-scenes stories about Anita - her life, her friendships, and her times.
