He also wrote successfully for the stage and cinema; his works included "The Grand Babylon Hotel," 1902 and "Imperial Hotel," 1930. Another of his works included the "Clayhanger" trilogy, 1910-1916. A realist, he had a lifelong admiration for the up-to-date and convenient. He examined ways in which conflict is experienced between social values and individual transgressive impulse.
