Like so many of his contemporaries, Utah-born screenwriter Elliott J. Clawson (the initial stood for Judd) had begun his professional life as a newspaper reporter, in his case in San Francisco and as a foreign correspondent. Entering films in the early 1910s, Clawson gained some reputation for penning Madame La Presidente (1916), a vehicle for the era's reigning musical comedy star Anna Held. Later Clawson wrote such diverse films as the propaganda epic The Kaiser, the Beast of Berlin (1918), a 1922 version of Under Two Flags featuring Priscilla Dean, Lon Chaney's The Phantom of the Opera ([1925] written with Raymond L. Schrock), and, again for Chaney, West of Zanzibar (1928). Like many of his peers, Clawson left screenwriting at the advent of sound.
