Author Code: ECLD

Died: Mar. 28, 1965 - London, England

Educated primarily in art in England at the Slade School of Fine Art in London and at the University of Dresden in Germany, Dane the took a teaching position in Geneva, Switzerland and then in Dublin, Ireland. In 1913, she made her debut as an actress on the London stage. In 1917, she published Regiment of Women, loosely based on her experiences in girls' school, and the book was reasonably successful. She produced her first play, A Bill of Divorcement, in 1921 and the ensuing years saw a number of great successes on the stage. During the 1930s, she increased her income by producing screenplays with many triumphs, culminating in 1945 with an Academy Award for Perfect Strangers (aka Vacation From Marriage) in collaboration with Anthony Pelissier. Dane also produced dramas for radio during its golden era of the 1940s. She was made a CBE in 1953. She continued to publish up to her death and her work is having a much needed revival. Her other works include First the Blade (1918), Legend (1919), William Shakespeare: An Invention (1921), The Babyons (1927), The King Waits (1929), Theater Royale (1931), Wild Decembers (1932), The Moon is Feminine (1938), The Lion and the Unicorn (1943), Call Home the Heart (1947), Bonnie Prince Charlie (1948), The Flower Girls (1954), Eighty in the Shade (1958) and The Godson (1964).
