Dodie_Smith’s Biography

Dorothy was born in Whitefield, Greater Manchester, near Bury in Lancashire. Her father was Ernest Smith, who died when Dodie was still a baby, Dorothy and her mother, Ella Furber Smith, returned to Dorothy’s grandparents and her parents; William and Margaret Furber, at 586 Chester Road in Old Trafford, Greater Manchester in the Stretford district.Dorothy spent her formative years and childhood in this house. But in 1910 her mother remarried and moved with her new husband to London. By then Dodie was 14 years old. In 1914, Dodie entered the Academy, (later the Royal Academy) of dramatic art. That same year his mother died of cancer. During her mother’s illness, the daughter became a follower of the Christian Science church. (Smith, 1974).

Dodie failed in her acting career. In 1923, he began working in London’s Heals, selling furniture and, later, toys (and the mistress of the chairman, Ambrose Heal.) In 1931 he wrote his first work, Autumn Crocus, under the pseudonym C.L. Anthony. It was a success and she discovered her vocation as a writer and journalist and inspired the headlines of the newspapers, “Shopgirl Writes Play” (seller writes work). (Smith, 1979).

He spent most of the following years writing in his Townhouse house in London, where now a plaque commemorates his stay there. In 1939, he married Alec Beesley, also an employee of Heal.

During the 1940s, she and her husband moved to the United States due to the legal problems of Alec Beesley, who was a conscientious objector (Smith, 1979). In the United States, he wrote his first novel: I Capture the Castle (1948). During the American interlude, the Beesleys became friends with writers such as Christopher Isherwood, Charles Brackett, and John Van Druten. In Smith’s memoirs, it is said that Alec suggested that Isherwood’s story Sally Bowles Goodbye to Berlin become a play (the Van Druten play, I Am A Camera, which later became the musical Cabaret. < / p>

The novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians (1956) was adapted by Walt Disney into an animated feature film. His novel I Capture the Castle was also adapted to film in a version made in 2003. By then Doddie Smith had died, in 1990.
