British playwright and screenwriter Barré Lyndon is best remembered for penning the screenplays to two minor Hollywood classics from the mid-'40s, The Lodger (1944) and Hangover Square (1945). Lyndon started out as a journalist and writer of short stories. He then became a playwright making his debut with The Amazing Dr. Clitterhouse (1936). That play was purchased by Warner Bros. shortly after its London premiere and made into a film staring Edward G. Robinson. Other Lyndon plays subsequently made it to the big screen include The Man in Half-Moon Street. In 1941, Lyndon moved to Hollywood and penned many screenplays either in collaboration or alone.
