Anita Loos

a.k.a. Corine Anita Loos

Author Code: ACAL

Born: Apr. 26, 1889 - Sisson, California, USA

Died: Aug. 18, 1981 - New York City, New York, USA

Educated at San Diego High School, Anita began acting in her father's company, and by 1911 she sold her first play. Her first screenplay to be produced, The New York Hat, starred Mary Pickford and Lionel Barrymore and was directed by D.W. Griffith. From 1912 to 1915 , she produced 105 scripts. She had unsuccessful marriage to Frank Pallma Jr. in 1915 which ended in divorce in 1919. Later that year, she was hired by Giffith. She later joined director John Emerson who would produce a number of films for Douglas Fairbanks and for which Loos would write five. The two were married in 1919 and moved to New York. Loos had befriended Frank Crowninshield of Vanity Fair on a previous sojourn to New York and became one of its regular contributors. She became friends with H. L. Mencken and his circle of friends. It was Mencken's attention to a blond on a train to Hollywood that gave Loos the spark for her most famous work, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, which began life as a serial in Harper's Bazaar. Published as a book in 1925, it was an immediate best-seller. Loos travelled to England in 1926 and then to Paris before returning to New York in 1927. During the 1930s, Loos continued to have success writing scripts, and received an Academy Award nomination for best original screenplay for San Francisco in 1935. During the war years, Loos continued to write screenplays. She also had Aldous Huxley and his wife Maria as house guests. Loos was an amazing story-teller and contributed regularly to the major periodicals such as Harper's Bazaar, Vanity Fair and The New Yorker. She produced the musical Gigi in 1951 on Broadway. Loos died after several weeks with a lung infection at the age of 92. Her other Works include But Gentlemen Marry Brunettes (1927), A Mouse is Born (1951), No Mother to Guide Her (1961), A Girl Like I (1966), Kiss Hollywood Good-by (1974) and The Talmadge Girls (1978).
