Gladys Buchanan Unger (September 16, 1884 or 1885 – May 25, 1940) was an American author who also lived in England, and who wrote plays for Broadway and the West End, as well as screenplays for Hollywood.[1]


She was born either on September 16, 1884 or September 16, 1885 in San Francisco,[2] the daughter of Frank Unger. She was the author of well over a dozen works for the London stage, Broadway, and Hollywood. From the age of 3 she lived in England and was educated at South Hampstead. Her initial aim was to become an artist, but she turned to play writing. She was a protegee of Charles Tyson Yerkes, and had $5000 a year from him, enabling her to live in some style in Mayfair, London. There was speculation in the American press about the nature of the relationship between them (e.g. The Oakland Tribune, 19 August 1904, quoting The Wasp). From about 1907 to 1914 she lived with her mother (critic Mrs Minnie Goodman) at Loughton in a house then called Hacienda, now Kilindini, Steeds Way, Loughton. In 1920 she married a dramatic collaborator, Kai K. Ardaschir, in London. She returned to the United States intermittently and in the 1920s permanently, and died on May 25, 1940 at the Medical Arts Center in Manhattan at age 55.[1]

She is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in The Bronx, New York City.
