Biography

Merton, Surrey, England, UK
Oscar-winner W.P. Lipscomb (born William Percy Lipscomb in 1887 in Merton, England) was a British playwright and screenwriter who also produced and directed motion pictures. George Arliss, who played the title role in Cardinal Richelieu (1935), thought his fellow British expatriate in Hollwood was able to write good dialogue quicker than any other writer he had worked with. His sole movie directing credit was Colonel Blood (1934), which he also wrote the screenplay for.
