Chester, Lillian

Tagged: Author

(1887-1961) US screenwriter and author who seems to have worked exclusively in collaboration with her husband, George Randolph Chester, after their marriage in 1911; it now seems unclear who was the senior partner (the two credited each other generously), though in the early twentieth century her husband was assumed to dominate. Of his (or their) works of interest, only The Ball of Fire (1914), a Near Future tale in which a magnate comes to dominate the Transportation networks of the world, is credited to both. [JC]
