Owen, Eric R

Tagged: Author

(?   -?   ) UK film director, cameraman and author, active from about 1918 in the cinema, primarily with Gaumont British News and British Movietone News 1933-1947. He is credited with the publication of several novels, perhaps some of them pseudonymous as none have been identified beyond Dr Zollinoff's Revenge: A Mystery and Detective Novel (1937). The eponymous Mad Scientist of this efficient tale uses his ability to control others through Hypnosis during the course of an unconscionable revenge scheme. Fortunately for the young woman under seemingly supernatural assault, his Psi Powers are so intense that they kill him in the end. [JC]
