Victor Eugene Heerman

1FindaGrave.com, https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=22506966. "Motion Picture Director. He started in movies in the 1910s, writing and directing short comedies for Mack Sennett. Later he married Sarah Y. Mason, the very first "continuity girl" in the business, and as a writing team they won an Academy Award for best screenplay adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's novel "Little Women" in 1933. They had two children, Victor and Catherine (godparents Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks). Heerman is perhaps best remembered for directing the Marx Brothers' second film, "Animal Crackers" (1930), a version of their Broadway hit. He lived to see the film revived in 1974, filling even first-run theaters in New York." Image.


Sarah Yeiser Mason

1FindaGrave.com, https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=11705237. "Screenwriter. She won an Academy Award for her adaptation of "Little Women" (1933), which she shared with her husband and collaborator, Victor Heerman. They also co-scripted that film's 1949 MGM remake. Her other credits include "Bright Skies" (1920), "Alias Jimmy Valentine" (1928), "The Broadway Melody" (1929), "The Age of Innocence" (1934), "Imitation of Life" (1934), "The Little Minister" (1934), "Magnificent Obsession" (1935), "Stella Dallas" (1937), and "Golden Boy" (1939). Mason was born in Pima, Arizona. Although she was one of the top screenwriters of her time, her greatest contribution to film was on the technical side: she was the very first script supervisor, or continuity clerk. This person's job is to keep track of every detail of a filmed shot so that the position of the actors, costumes, props, and background will match in the next take. Mason suggested the idea to director Allan Dwan, who accepted it for his film "Arizona" (1918). The script supervisor remains an unsung but important part of the moviemaking process." Image.
