    One thought on “They Knew What They Wanted”

    1. THEY KNEW WHAT THEY WANTED. (1924). Sidney Howard. ****. Howard (1909-1939) was born in Oakland and educated at Berkeley and Harvard. He was a well-known dramatist and script writer. His breakthrough work was this play, the story of a middle-aged Italian vineyard owner in Napa who woos a young woman in San Francisco by mail. The only problem was that he sent a false photo of himself – a photo of his vineyard overseer, Joe. They were married when she came out to Napa – much against her better [...]

    2. I enjoy the musical adaptation of Howard's play (The Most Happy Fella by Loesser) more, but it was fun to read the play too.

    3. This was the first play Beatrix played an American in. It was the last of the three times she understudied for Tallhulah Bankhead. I have to say I didn't care for this play at all. It was more hick farmers, although they had money, and was a very similar story to the later Eugene O'Neil play when the young girl falls for the handsome younger man instead of the older farmer she was supposed to be marrying. The characters just felt so unlikable, the dialogue wasn't that inspiring and full of diale [...]

    4. I can't say I enjoyed this play. Too many stereotypes, too much predictability in the plot. I think if I'd spent money to see this play performed, I'd want my money back, based on the weakness of the story.
