Dodie Smith wrote the much, loved children’s classic The Hundred and One Dalmatians. What most people don’t know is that Dodie went from being a shop girl to one of the most successful commercial playwrights of the 1930’s, with a huge career in the West End and on Broadway. She wrote screenplays in Hollywood before becoming a best selling author with her coming of age novel I Capture the Castle. Find out how Dalmatians stole her heart, starting with her beloved Pongo and how her little book about dogs became one of Disney’s most iconic animated films.
