Thanks to British playwright and novelist, Dodie Smith, Cruella Deville is a household name. She first wrote this villain above all villains in The 101 Dalmatians, a children's novel, no less! This name's root word of "cruel" comes as no surpirse, but what might be a surprise is how hardy the children of 1956 must have been to take this story on in their stride.
