Anita Loos began her long and distinguished career as a screenwriter (her credits include Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and Red-Headed Woman) by selling scenarios for one-reel films to Biograph for $25 each. Here are five of her early efforts, including the topical satire A Cure for Suffragettes (with intertitles reconstructed by Loos in the 1970s) and the vaudevillian ethnic humor of Oh, Sammy. Restored by The Museum of Modern Art and the Film Foundation, with funding provided by the George Lucas Family Foundation. Additional preservation work made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts, Celeste Bartos, and the Lillian Gish Trust for Film Preservation.
