characters The Shocking Miss Pilgrim A Writer in Early Hollywood Frederica Sagor Maas · 9 free download free read ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub · Frederica Sagor Maas Freddie Maas's revealing memoir offers a uniue perspective on the film industry and Hollywood culture in their early days and illuminates the plight of Hollywood writers working within the studio system An ambitious twenty three year old Maas moved to Hollywood and launched her own writing career by drafting a screenplay of the bestselling novel The Plastic Age for It girl Clara Bow On the basis of that script she landed a staff position at powerhouse MGM stud. I was hoping this book would be better with interesting info about moviemaking in the 1920 s and what writing screenplays for the silent screen entailed but it turned out to be of a pity party for Mrs Maas Hollywood or at least many folks who have worked in the motion picture business over the years has always done terrible things to people including ripping them off co opting their ideas and taking the credit and firing people on the merest whim Frederika and Ernest Maas s treatment was not uniue But I got the feeling in reading this book that Mrs Maas always felt that she was a special person destined for great things and maybe just a little bit better and smarter than everyone else She dismisses her older sisters all teachers as mere schoolmarms and when she gets an early break as an assitant to the story editor at Universal she mentions that her family were impressed with my job and recognized that it was both unusual and important I think she really needed to believe that She actually did have some creative success early in her career and there s no real knowing why it all fell apart It probably didn t help that she seemed to think success was owed to her on account of her being so inherently wonderful Success in the film business is not only about talent it s also about making connections impressing people and not burning bridges Also if you re a writer it helps to have an agent which apparently neither she nor her husband ever had until right at the end of their careersThe other aspect of this book I wasn t thrilled with were the gossipy tidbits she offers throughout As far as I can tell from the brief research I ve done many of these seem to be untrue or unverifiable She mentions a rumor about Marion Davies and William Randolph Hearst having twin sons spotting an unknown Clark Gable on some film lot in the mid 20 s so how would she have known who he was or that the encounter was worth remembering and other assorted usually mean spirited mentions of people famous and not so Every story seems designed to show herself in the best light I do wish I could have liked Frederika Sagor Maas and her story better than I did If I could go back in time 1920 s Los Angeles is one of the places I d like to visit
