Biography

Successful playwright, some of whose stage writing was adapted to the screen (e. g., "Smilin' Through" in 1922, 1932 and 1941). Murfin worked consistently in Hollywood from the late teens. She scripted a number of "women's pictures" for John Cromwell at RKO in the early 1930s--the stand-out being "Spitfire" (1934)--and collaborated more prestigiously on several George Cukor films, most notably "What Price Hollywood?" (1932) and "The Women" (1939). Married to actor-director Donald Crisp from 1932 to 1944.
