New York. New York Theatre Program Corporation. 1924.
16 pp. theatre program, 7.75 x 5 inches, in paper wraps. Soft vertical fold. Several very small chips at spine. Color ads for Murad Cigarettes, Djer-Kiss, Kelly Springfield Tires, plus copious black and white advertising. Overall good condition. The World War I drama opened on Broadway on September 5, 1924 and closed on September 12, 1925; this program is for the week following the opening night. The director, Arthur Hopkins, observes in the program: "The speech of men under arms is universally and consistently interlarded with profanity.... The authors...have attempted to reproduce this mannerism along with other general atmosphere they believe to be true.... The audience is asked to bear with certain expletives which...herein are employed because the mood and truth of the play demand their employment." Item #48058
