The show ran from Feb. 24, 1934, through Jun. 30, 1934, with 147 performances. Cast included Walter Huston and Fay Bainter. Just two years later, Sam Goldwyn would produce a movie version which is considered one of the best films of the 1930s. Photos by E. White Studio were likely used for Stage magazine.
- 11 x 14″ (28 x 35 cm.) A note on verso indicates that this is a set for Scene 2, very possibly for Act I, which would have taken place in Sam Dodsworth’s home in Zenith;
- 10 x 13″ (25 x 32 cm.) Most likely a set for one of the later acts, presumably set in a European hotel room.
