Anita Loos , was an acclaimed American screenwriter, playwright and author. On pronouncing her name, "The family has always used the correct French pronunciation which is lohse. However, I myself pronounce my name as if it were spelled luce, since most people pronounce it that way and it was too much trouble to correct them."

Following her early appearances on the stage, Loos drew on her life experiences for subject matter to fulfill her ambition to write screenplays and scripts. After a short-lived marriage and fueled by her initial writing success, she joined the Hollywood film community as a writer. In her first position with a major film company she was teamed with John Emerson whom she would later marry, and it was during the following years that she would write one of her best-known works, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. The marriage to the philandering hypochondriac Emerson deteriorated while Loos did most of the work, and when the team was offered a contract to write pictures for MGM she took the job to write alone.
