Katharine Cornell today February, 1939 X Foreword Some seventeen years ago I was general assistant to Winthrop Ames when he produced The Green Goddess with George Arliss as its star at the Booth Theatre. In the ninth month of that plays run I married Katharine Cornell. A little over a month later she made her first big hit in A Bill of Divorcement. The night after she had received her glowing notices I had some business to at tend to backstage at the Booth. Mr. Arliss came out of his dressing-room and, instead of greeting me as usual, turned to Maude Ho well, the stage manager, and said Who is this young man And before she could reply, he adjusted his monocle, looked at me again and, with a malevolent foreboding chuckle, said Oh, of course, its Miss Cornells husband, That was a very happy thing to be then, anci after seventeen years it is still a very happy tiling to be. And as such I have been called upon to write or f to be more exact, supply a foreword. To you who read this book, and I trust there will be many, any thing I could say would be like bringing coals to New castle, But to Mr Arliss 1 might say, Meet the wife. GUTHEIE McCHNTIC
