Sarah Y. Mason

Sarah Y. Mason (March 31, 1896 – November 28, 1980) was an American screenwriter and script supervisor.[1] She and her husband Victor Heerman won the Academy Award for best screenplay adaptation for their adaptation for the 1933 film Little Women, based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott. Mason was one of the first people in Hollywood to specialize in script supervision and film continuity when the industry switched from silent film to talkies.[2][3]

Mason was born in Pima, Arizona. She and Heerman married in 1921. She died in Los Angeles and was cremated. Victor and Sarah had two children, Catharine Anliss Heerman, an artist and teacher of art in Southern California, and Victor, Jr., a successful breeder of Thoroughbred racehorses. The Academy Award for Little Women remains with the family.
