Anita Loos was a notable American author, playwright and screenwriter. - AsNotedIn
Loos was a very valuable asset for MGM, because the studio had so many femmes fatales - Garbo, Crawford, Shearer and Harlow - that we were always on the lookout for shady lady stories. But they were problematic because of the censorship code. Anita, however, could be counted on to supply the delicate double entendre, the telling innuendo. Whenever we had a Jean Harlow picture on the agenda, we always thought of Anita first.
