Anita Loos and John Emerson

Anita Loos is one of my favourite Hollywood characters. She wrote the best silent film intertitles (bar none), brilliantly snappy 1930s comedies and the deathless comic novel Gentlemen Prefer Blondes too. The fact that the Slapstick festival in Bristol is paying tribute to her this month was excuse enough for me to devote my latest Guardian column to hymning her praises.
