The younger sister of Lady Duff Gordon, the couturier, Elinor Glyn (née Sutherland) was a novelist, screenplay writer and film director. Her first novel, The Visits of Elizabeth (1900), launched her career as a romantic novelist, but she is best known for Three Weeks (1907), through which she achieved fame and notoriety. Married to Clayton Louis Glyn, she had affairs with Lord Curzon and Lord Milner, but her love was unrequited.
