Orth began her career as a playwright and magazine writer, publishing in Breezy Stories as early as 1917.[1][2] In 1920, she moved from Chicago to Los Angeles at the invitation of Lois Weber, who had purchased the film rights to two of Orth's stories, "The Price of a Good Time" (filmed in 1917) and "Borrowed Clothes" (filmed in 1918).[3] Orth went on to write several films with and for Weber, including A Midnight Romance, To Please One Woman, Too Wise Wives, and The Blot.[4]

In 1923, she signed a seven-picture contract at Universal as a scenarist; her efforts at the studio included work on The Price of Pleasure and Dorothy Arzner's The Wild Party.[3][5] She also wrote a string of films for Fox. In 1934, she began writing for Monogram Pictures.

In 1938, she settled a lawsuit with Republic for releasing a 1937 film called Circus Girl based on her novel. Orth was awarded $10,000.[6][7]

Orth's apparently final film was released in 1944.[8]
