About the author (2009)

Born in Mexico in 1906, Luis d'Antin van Rooten was raised in the United States, where he lived in New York City and Chatham, Massachussetts. Along with his obvious interest in the scholarship of language, Mr van Rooten pursued a distinguished career both in the theatre and the cinema. He appeared in many Broadway plays, and his film credits include Two Years Before the Mast; Night Has a Thousand Eyes and The Sea Chase. He also provided the voices for both the King and Grand Duke in Disney's Cinderella, so talked to himself throughout! He died in 1973.
