Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lenore Jackson Coffee (13 July 1896, San Francisco - 2 July 1984, Woodland Hills, California) was an American screenwriter, playwright and novelist. Coffee began her career when she answered an ad requesting a screen story for the actress Clara Kimball Young and was awarded a one-year contract at $50 a week. She was twice nominated for an Academy Award for best Adapted Screenplay. The first time was for Street of Chance in 1929/30, adapted from the story by Oliver H. P. Garrett, in collaboration with Howard Estabrook; and the second was with Julius J. Epstein in 1938 for Four Daughters, based on Fannie Hurst's novel, Sister Act. Of the studio system she is quoted as saying: "They pick your brains, break your heart, ruin your digestion - and what do you get for it? Nothing but a lousy fortune."
