£47.95
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

Sonya Levien was among the most successful and respected screenwriters in Hollywood. During her career from 1919 to 1960, Levien worked on well over one hundred screen stories and scripts for both silent and sound pictures. She wrote comedies, melodramas, epics, and musicals. A Great Lady details the course of this exceptional career at Fox and M-G-M and her most interesting projects and colleagues. It examines her relationship to the important political and labor movements affecting the motion picture industry and her change from her socially and politically radical younger years as an anarchist, socialist, and suffragist to a highly successful, moderately conservative screenwriter. Includes a detailed filmography.

Larry Ceplair is Professor of History at Santa Monica College. He is also the interviewer for the UCLA Oral History project on the motion picture blacklist.
