Did You Know?
Flaming Youth was based on the popular novel of the same name written by author Samuel Hopkins Adams
(as Warner Fabian). Focusing upon the sexual urges of young women in the Jazz Age, the novel had a frankness that was controversial for its time, and Adams used the pseudonym "Warner Fabian" so that his other works would not be tainted by scandal. As a result of this novel being made into a film, Colleen Moore
became a major Hollywood star. Flaming Youth also ushered in the popularity of flapper-themed film in 1923. See more
