Douglas Z. Doty
American screenwriter Douglas Z. Doty's Hollywood career extended from 1921 to 1938. During the silent era, Doty not only wrote scripts but also designed the "art" subtitles that bore his words. His most notorious credit of the 1920s was The Unchastened Woman (1925), an ill-conceived comeback feature for vampish Theda Bara. In 1930, Douglas Z. Doty earned an Academy Award nomination for his work on the Nancy Carroll-Fredric March vehicle Laughter.
