The New York Hat (1912), written by Anita Loos | Inspired

In the early days of film, screenwriting was an almost exclusively female domain, and Anita Loos was one of the most prolific and influential ‘script girls’—the women who wrote scenarios and intertitles for silent films. When she was 24 years old, she sold her first scenario to D.W. Griffith’s Biograph Studios for $25. The New York Hat went on to star Mary Pickford and Lionel Barrymore.
