Back in Los Angeles with Ben, Barbara’s health returns and she begins writing, eventually drafting a full-length story scenario. The Fox Film Corporation purchases the scenario and offers Barbara a lucrative contract for five more original stories for Fox star Gladys Brockwell. This chapter, along with detailing the process of writing for the silent screen, focuses heavily upon Barbara’s career as a screenwriter; details regarding plot synopses, production, and critical reception are presented for the first three of her Fox films, The Mother of His Children (1920), The Little Grey Mouse (1920), and The Rose of Nome (1920). Meanwhile, Barbara and Ben’s marital troubles come to a head, culminating in what promises to be a lurid, publicized divorce suit.
