About this title


Offers brief profiles of women script writers, producers, directors, editors, and technicians

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Anita Loos's prolific contribution to the world of film is undeniable. She turned out 105 scripts between 1912 and 1915, only 4 of which went unproduced. She was the first to turn "title writing" on the silent screen into a wisecracking art form. Between 1919 and 1921 everyone tried to copy her wit, making the reading of screen titles nearly unbearable, for no one could quite match her humor. By the time her smash hit Gentlemen Prefer Blonds was adapted for the screen from her novel, the New York Times commented that Anita Loo's big triumph was to bring an element of maturity to an art form that was in danger of becoming infantile.

She's the woman who beat out Walt Disney by ten years. Lotte Reiniger was the first person to create, and produce a fully animated feature from 1923 to 1926, using a technique that she pioneered known as "silhouette" animation.
