Anita Loos (1889-1981) was the screenwriter behind Hollywood classics such as The Perfect Woman and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. She wrote dozens of screenplay throughout a career spanning more than four decades.

She wrote the famous Gentlemen Prefer Blondes novel in 1925, and adapted it as a stage musical a year later. In 1915, she became arguably the first ever staff scriptwriter, working for the Triangle Film Corporation.
