Author. He worked for many years as a journalist, but with his first mystery novel "The Four Just Men" (1905), he obtained a great success. In 1915, he wrote his first script, "Nurse and Martyr" and this year were released eight silent films from his stories at the rate of one a month. Wallace also directed the motion pictures "Red Aces" (1929) and "The Squeaker" (1930). Eventually writing more then 150 novels, among his better known books are "The Ringer," "The Case of the Frightened Lady" and "The Calendar." He died in Hollywood, California in 1932 while working on the screenplay of "King Kong" (1933). A memorial plaque was erected for him on a building at the corner of Fleet Street in London, England, near where he sold newspapers as a boy in Ludgate Circus. (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
