Her performances for troops during World War I earned her the nickname "Sweetheart of the AEF" (American Expeditionary Force). Concentrating on screenwriting and songwriting for the next two decades, she returned to the screen in the first U.S. film about London facing the German blitzkrieg (Women in War, 1940).
