When Women Wrote Hollywood : Essays on Female Screenwriters in the Early Film Industry Paperback
Edited by Rosanne Welch
When Women Wrote Hollywood is a collection of 23 essays on the lives of female screenwriters from early Hollywood, whose bold, brash, brilliant words have enhanced our film experiences, but whose names have been left out of most film history textbooks.
These essays explore the themes of their writing and the trajectories of each woman's career.
From the more famous Anita Loos, Adela Rogers St. Johns and Lillian Hellman to the more obscure Gene Gauntier, Eve Unsell and Ida May Park, female screenwriters have created the stories we have loved for generation to generation including Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Ben Hur, and It's a Wonderful Life.
