About

When Sarah Baker finds something she’s passionate about, she won’t rest until the story is told.

Baker’s first project was a seven-year labor of love—a documentary film about silent film star Olive Thomas, which she wrote and produced. Over the course of her research, Baker located 10 of Thomas’ 20 films—all of which had been considered lost. The resulting documentary, Olive Thomas: Everybody’s Sweetheart, executive produced by Hugh Hefner, was released to DVD (2004) along with Thomas’ film The Flapper —the first time this film had been available to the public since 1920.

Baker’s book, Lucky Stars: Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell , a dual biography of the famous 1920s romantic duo, published by Bear Manor Media, hit bookstores on December 1, 2009. She is a contributing writer for WAHM.com, and also writes for Fort Worth Child and Southwest Blues magazines. Currently, Baker is in production on another documentary, Blues Man: The Life and Times of Sean Costello. A native Texan, Baker is currently living in New Bern, North Carolina.
