The Milky Way (1934). Comedy. Written by Lynn Root and Harry Clork. Directed by William W. Schorr. Cort Theatre: 8 May 1934- Jul 1934 (closing date unknown/63 performances). Cast: John Brown, Brian Donlevy (as "Speed McFarland"), Leo Donnelly (as "Gabby Sloan") final Broadway role, Edward Emerson, William Foran, Gladys George (as "Anne Westey"), Emily Lowry, Hugh O'Connell (as "Burleigh Sullivan"), Bernard Pathe. Produced by Sidney Harmon and James R. Ullman. Note: Considering it did not recoup it's investment, this play proved surprising durable on film.
