Biography by Hal Erickson

American screenwriter Elizabeth Meehan was barely out of college when she began her film career. Meehan's silent-movie credits include the literary adaptations The Great Gatsby (1926) and Laugh Clown Laugh (1928). Her early-talkie assignments sometimes took her away from the big studios and into the independents, as witness Oliver Twist (Goldstone/Monogram, 1933) and Harmony Lane (Mascot, 1935). Elizabeth Meehan spent her last active decade at such studios as RKO and Paramount; her final effort was 1945's Out of This World, a satire of celebrity worship.
