"Anita 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 This unique collection of previously unpublished film treatments, short stories, and one-act plays spans fifty years of her creative writing and showcases the breadth and depth of her talent.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 sent from her San Diego home to D.W. Griffith, through her collaboration years later with Colette on the play Gigi, Anita Loos wrote almost every day for the screen or stage, or for book or magazine publication. The list of stars for whom she created unforgettable roles includes Mary Pickford, Jean Harlow, Clark Gable, Audrey Hepburn, and Carol Channing." "This collection was personally selected by Anita's niece and close friend, the best-selling author Mary Anita Loos, together with the acclaimed film historian Carl Beauchamp. Their essays are laced throughout the volume, providing fascinating introductions to Anita's writings and offering previously untold insights and behind the scenes stories about Anita - her life, her friendships, and her times."--Jacket
