the soubrette of satire

gentlemen prefer blondes
red headed woman
the women

those are just three great screenplays written by anita loos. she has a total of 136 screenwriting credits.

Between 1912 and 1915 she turned out 105 scripts, only four of which went unproduced. she would write 200 scenarios before she ever saw the inside of a studio. the 4'11" anita lived to be 93.
