The Man Who Bought London is a 1915 crime novel by the British writer Edgar Wallace.[1] It was originally published as a magazine serialisation.[2]

An American, Kerry King, leads a syndicate of millionaires seeking to buy up large chunks of London in order to redevelop them for the benefit of the poorer inhabitants. However, his plan is threatened by the schemes of a former business partner, Hermann Zeberlieff.

Film adaptation

It was adapted for a 1916 British silent film of the same title directed by Floyd Martin Thornton and starring Evelyn Boucher and Roy Travers. It was the first of many screen adaptations of Wallace's novels and stories.[3]

The tale was adapted again under the title Time to Remember (1962), directed by Charles Jarrott. It was an entry in the Edgar Wallace Mysteries series of second features made at Merton Park Studios.
