BiographyEdit

Miller was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 1894, to Robert Miller and Louise Haas. Her parents divorced when she was young, and she grew up with her mother and brother in Milwaukee. Her first job was as a secretary to a businessman in town.[4]

In 1919, she and her mother arrived in Hollywood, and soon she had found work writing film scenarios. During the 1920s through the 1930s, she was credited on dozens of motion pictures, and was under contract for much of that time at Samuel Goldwyn Studios (later MGM), and briefly at Paramount.[5][6] Her work was in demand, and a number of studios vied to get her.[7]

During World War II, she enlisted in the Women's Army Corps.[8]
