Edgar Neville


Edgar Neville

Edgar Neville Romrée, Count of Berlanga de Duero (December 28, 1899 – April 23, 1967) was a Spanish playwright and film director, a member of the Generation of '27.

The films he directed in the 40s and 50s, yet not very successful in the box-office, reached a very characteristic and interesting mix of realism and romanticism; and actually several of them showed vivid and moving pictures of Madrid that have yet to be matched in any later film.

Neville lived in Hollywood in the 30's, in the period of the dubbed Spanish versions of the studios' English-language films. There he became a close friend of Charles Chaplin.
