Ten Steps in the Making of a Movie
Showing the actual progress of the filming of “Red Hair”
- Like all good ideas, it has a casual beginning. Elinor Glyn goes on a yachting trip with Clara Bow and as the sea breezes romp through Clara’s flaming hair, Mme. Glyn gets the idea for the story
- Elinor Glyn sells the story to B. P. Schulberg. The producer calls in Clarence Badger, director, and Lloyd Corrigan, scenario writer. They are delegated to act as foster-fathers to Elinor’s brain child
- “This idea,” says Corrigan, as he works on the script,”rose, like Venus, from the waves.” And so he does his writing in the bathtub, thereby insuring a clean picture
Photoplay, March of 1928.
