10 Steps in the Making of a Movie: Photoplay (March 1928) Part 1

Ten Steps in the Making of a Movie

Showing the actual progress of the filming of “Red Hair”

  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. “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.
