Alice Duer Miller (1874 – 1942)

In the 1920s and 1930s, many of Ms. Miller's stories were aces, used for motion pictures, such as Are Parents People?, Roberta, and Irene (1940). She was involved with many other talkies, including the great Pre-Code comedy Wife vs. Secretary. In 1940, this sweet patootie wrote the plenty rugged verse novel The White Cliffs, which earned a lot of kale.
