S. S. van Dine

This early work by S. S. Van Dine was originally published in 1934 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introduction. The Casino Murder Case is one of Van Dines novels of crime and mystery. S. S. Van Dine was born Willard Huntington Wright in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1888. He attended St. Vincent College, Pomona College and Harvard University, but failed to graduate, leaving to cultivate contacts he had made in the literary world. At the age of twenty-one, Wright began his professional writing career as literary editor of the Los Angeles Times. In 1926, Wright published his first S. S. Van Dine novel, The Benson Murder Case. Wright went on to write eleven more mysteries. The first few books about his upper-class amateur sleuth, Philo Vance, were so popular that Wright became wealthy for the first time in his life. His later books declined in popularity as the reading publics tastes in mystery fiction changed, but during the late twenties and early thirties his work was very successful.

American art critic Willard Huntington Wright, under the pseudonym of Dine when he wrote detective novels, was an important figure in avant-garde cultural circles in pre-WWI New York, and under the pseudonym (which he originally used to conceal his identity) he created the once immensely popular fictional detective Philo Vance, a sleuth and aesthete who first appeared in books in the 1920s

William Powell as Philo Vance: The Benson … Powell, who would play Vance once more in Michael Curtiz's The Kennel Murder Case, projects the proper urgency, but still fails to capture the detective's cynicism (though the script deserves equal blame).

The Kennel Murder Case (with William Powell, Mary Astor, Eugene Pallet, and others) is considered a masterpiece by film buffs and historians, and one of the greatest screen adaptations of a novel from the Golden Age of detective, crime, and murder mystery books. It is included, with other Philo Vance films, in The Philo Vance Murder Case Collection. The Casino Murder Case (Philo Vance #8)
