Smart and witty, Anita Loos was one of Hollywood’s most beloved and prolific screenwriters, creating unforgettable roles for such stars as Mary Pickford, Jean Harlow, Clark Gable, and Audrey Hepburn. On October 23, author Cari Beauchamp introduces a special screening of the pre-Code comedy Red-Headed Woman (1932), a classic Harlow/Loos collaboration, and discusses and signs copies of her new book Anita Loos Rediscovered: Film Treatments and Fiction by Anita Loos, edited and annotated by Beauchamp and Mary Anita Loos (University of California Press, 2003).

Organized by Mary Lea Bandy, Chief Curator, and Natalie Hirniak, Manager, Department of Film and Media.
