Short biography
Theodore Edwin Greenwood, who preferred to be called Edwin, was the son of a music teacher, Alfred Greenwood.   Alfred, according to his son, "did everything from digging god in New Zealand to singing at Convent Garden.   Edwin was a chorister at King's College, Cambridge between the ages of 8 and 14. His father wanted him to be a chartered accountant, but Edwin studied philosophy at the Sorbonne and became a socialist.

Edwin served in the French army in World War I.   He took up acting, but turned to directing and screenwriting movies.   He also wrote farcical crime novels, often involving the aristocracy.

He married Mollie Collett-Jones in September 1934.   He died at the age of 44 in 1939 of endocarditis, an infected heart valve.   Mollie would later marry Oliver Stonor. [from The Deadly Dowager or Skin and Bone (2016 ed.)]
