Ethel Lina White - Brief Biography
Born 1887 and died 1944. Best known for The Wheel Spins which was adapted for film by Alfred Hitchcock as the classic The Lady Vanishes. Also the Spiral Staircae, another film and play from the book Some Must Watch. The was directed by Robert Siodmak and starred Dorothy McGuire, George Bent and Ethel Barrymore.

ETHEL LINA WHITE, born in 1877, was the author of fifteen outstanding mystery stories before she died in 1944. Her first two novels were, however, straight fiction. She started writing as a child and throughout her life treated her craft with all the respect it deserves: she was strongly of the opinion that thrillers should be well written and would write and rewrite her manuscript until she was satisfied with it. The Lady Vanishes, originally published in 1936 as The Wheel Spins, first became a great success on the screen in Alfred Hitchcock's famous film version. Now Rank Films has created a new film version, with an all-star cast headed by Elliot Gould, Cybill Shepherd, Angela Lansbury and Herbert Lorn.
