OccupationWriter

Bryan Edgar Wallace (1904–1971) was a British writer. The son of the writer Edgar Wallace, Bryan was also a writer of crime and mystery novels which were very similar in style to those of his father. He was named after the American politician William Jennings Bryan who his father encountered during a trip to North America.[1]

Some of his better known novels are Death Packs a Suitcase, The Strangler of Blackmoor Castle, Murder is Not Enough, The Device, The Man Who Would Not Swim, Murder in Touraine, The White Carpet, The Phantom of Soho and The World is at Stake, among others. During the 1930s, he worked as a screenwriter in the British film industry, mostly co-writing film scripts with other writers (approximately from 1930 to 1939).

From 1961 through 1971, several of his works were made into films during the 1960s boom in German film adaptations of his father's novels. Sometimes Bryan's films are mistaken for Edgar Wallace adaptations, since they are so similar in plot and style. [2] In 1963, he appeared in a 50-minute German documentary about his father called The Edgar Wallace Story.

He died in 1971, at age 67.[3]
