Synopsis: Draws on personal letters, journals, and interviews with family members and colleagues to capture the life and times of Frances Marion, one of the most powerful, acclaimed, and neglected screenwriters of Hollywood's Golden Age. 15,000 first printing.

Review: Screenwriter Frances Marion (1888-1973) is the central subject of this excellent book, but mega-star Mary Pickford, journalist Adela Rogers St. Johns, bit-player-turned-gossip-columnist Hedda Hopper, and other high-powered female friends get nearly equal time. The author's skillful mix of biography with Hollywood history results in a densely textured portrait of an industry in formation and the intelligent, ambitious women who seized the opportunities it offered them for creative expression and financial independence. The text also instills new appreciation for the artistry of silent movies.
