Elinor Glyn As Novelist, Moviemaker, Glamour Icon and Businesswoman

Elinor Glyn As Novelist, Moviemaker, Glamour Icon and Businesswoman by Vincent L. Barnett and Alexis Weedon
English | 2014 | ISBN: 1472421825 | 236 pages | PDF | 1,6 MB

The first full-length study of the authorial and cross-media practices of the English novelist Elinor Glyn (1864-1943), Elinor Glyn as Novelist, Moviemaker, Glamour Icon and Businesswoman examines Glyn's work as a novelist in the United Kingdom followed by her success in Hollywood where she adapted her successful romantic novels into films. Making extensive use of newly available archival materials, Vincent L. Barnett and Alexis Weedon explore Glyn's experiences from multiple perspectives, including the artistic, legal and financial aspects of the adaptation process. At the same time, they document Glyn's personal and professional relationships with a number of prominent individuals in the Hollywood studio system, including Louis B. Mayer and Irving Thalberg. The authors contextualize Glyn's involvement in scenario-writing in relationship to other novelists in Hollywood, such as Edgar Wallace and Arnold Bennett, and also show how Glyn worked across Europe and America to transform her stories into other forms of media such as plays and radio dramas. Providing a new perspective from which to understand the historical development of both British and American media industries in the first half of the twentieth century, this book will appeal to historians working in the fields of cultural and film studies, publishing and business history.
