The Last Insider of Silent Hollywood
posted January 16, 2012 1 Comment
Frederica Sagor Maas is dead at 111, but not before telling all about silent-era Hollywood.
The prolific screenwriter first trained to be a doctor, and then a journalist, and after quitting Hollywood in disgust said she would have preferred to be a washer woman.
The movies? Maas gave up on them, too, saying in 1999: “The product they’re making today is even worse than the product we made in the early days.”
The New York Times reports.
