Synopsis:
Leonora, being an old-fashioned mother, requests a fellow traveler to clost the
window of their compartment because her daughter Milly has a sniffy cold. The
Traveler refuses and Leonora pushes him off the train, closing the window
herself. She is arrested, charlged with murder and brought to trial, but she so
charms the judge and jury that she easily convinces them of the justice of her
act and is triumphantly acquitted.
From The Best Plays of 19261927 by Burns Mantle.
* These are the opening night cast credits; Robert Montgomery joined the play after the
opening night and therefore he is not included in this listing so I cannot provide the name of
the character he portrayed.
