Abstract

The author of The Magnificent Yankee, the play dealing with the Washington years of Justice Holmes, tells of the fruitful role played by Justice Frankfurter in providing background material and of Justice Frankfurter's wide knowledge of the theater. The play opened on New Year's Eve in 1945 in Washington, with Louis Calhern and Dorothy Gish cast as Justice and Mrs. Holmes. Mr. Calhern was joined by Ann Harding for the motion picture version released in 1950. In 1965 Mr. Lavery received a Gavel Award from the American Bar Association in honor of the television production of the play, in which Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne were starred.
