      Miss Maude Adams as 'Phoebe Throssel' times PHOEBE Sergeant, I am wishful to scold you, but Quality Street A Comedy in four acts by. J. M. Barrie Illustrated by Hugh Thomson Hodder & Stoughton. Illustrations in Colour ACT I The Blue and White Room PHOEBE. "Quality Street" appeared in , one year before the production of Peter Pan, as Barrie was becoming somewhat of a sensation in the theatrical world. This four-act comedy is an adult fairy tale of sorts, brought to life by Barrie's charming imagination and ability to weave between reality and fantasy.

    Quality Street is a period film made by RKO Radio Pictures. [1] [2] It was directed by George Stevens and produced by Pandro S. in 19th-century England, the film stars Katharine Hepburn and Franchot Tone. Joan Fontaine makes one of her early (uncredited) film appearances. The screenplay was by Allan Scott, Mortimer Offner, and Jack Townley, based on the play Quality Street. An old printed image (the earliest known) of J M Barrie's birthplace and home at 9 Brechin Road in the weaving town of Kirriemuir (his fictional Thrums), Forfarshire, Scotland - Sir James Matthew Barrie, 1st Baronet (), was a writer, dramatist and story teller who is best known for his novel of Peter Pan, The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up.

    What Every Woman Knows is a four-act play written by J. M. Barrie. It was first presented by impresario Charles Frohman at the Duke of York's Theatre in London on 3 September It ran for performances, transferring to the Hicks Theatre between 21 . Quality Street has a quality history, it was first performed on Broadway by the immortal Maude Adams in and then made a silent film in starring Marion Davies and Conrad Nagel. I can certainly see why William Randolph Hearst thought this a good role for Davies. She could be both a crinolined heroine and also use her comic talents as well.
