Rupert Croft-Cooke is a little known British writer who wrote a short story based upon a play called Banquo’s Chair in 1930. His mystery writings were never on the level of Dorothy Sayers, Agatha Christie or G.K Chesterton, all of whom he spoofed in a detective story he wrote. But his story Banquo’s Chair did achieve some success starting with the play, then radio drama, then film. The radio version was heard over Suspense and was broadcast three times and starred the character actor Donal Crisp as the Inspector.
