Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Bridie (3 January 1888; Glasgow - 29 January 1951; Edinburgh) was the pseudonym of a Scottish playwright, screenwriter and surgeon whose real name was Osborne Henry Mavor. Mavor studied medicine at the University of Glasgow, then served as a military doctor during World War I, seeing service in France and Mesopotamia. His comedic plays saw success in London, and he became a full time writer in 1938. Despite this, he returned to the army during World War II, again serving as a doctor. He was the main founder of the Citizens Theatre in Glasgow. James Bridie worked with the director Alfred Hitchcock in the late 1940s. They worked together on: The Paradine Case (1947). Bridie originally wrote the screenplay, and Ben Hecht contributed some additional dialogue. But due to casting, the characters had to be changed. So David O. Selznick had to write another script.show more
