Louise Lovely (and Wilton Welch)

Louise Lovely (Nellie Louise Alberti, 1895-1980, aka Louise Carbasse) wrote and directed Jewelled Nights (1925) in association with her husband, a gay actor. She was also the star of such films. There was an attempt one year to name the nameless AFI (now AACTA) awards the 'Lovelys' (like the Oscars). It did not catch on.
