Parry, Lee. Lee Parry (1901-1977) was a silent film star in Europe in the 1920s. In 1924 Parry was the heroine of the Celebrity Pulp Lee Parry--Die Tollkühne Abenteuerin #1-35; the series was reprinted in the Netherlands in 1924 and in Poland in 1924. Written by German authors Paul Rosenhayn (Fred Carter, Joe Jenkins, Fred Walker (II)) and Paul Hain (Hitler Youth (I), Robby Ix, Robby King, Harold Lloyd) Lee Parry--Die Tollkühne Abenteuerin portrayed Parry as a crime-fighting adventuress. The fictional Parry is not functionally different from the other heroes of the heftromanes apart from her sex. She travels around the world (Montmartre, Upsala, the Rif desert, Whitechapel), fights interesting opponents (the Lady In Black, the Smiling Muslim, the Death Club), and makes good friends (the Gypsy Princess, the White Knight). The fictional Parry appears in stories with titles like “The Invisible Guest,” “The House With No Lights,” and “The Organ Players From Holy Cross.”
