Welcome stranger


Welcome stranger
   Sam H. Harris's production of Aaron Hoffman's popular four-act comedy opened on 13 September 1920 for 309 performances at the Cohan and Harris Theatre. Gentle Isidor Solomon, played by George Sidney, becomes a haberdasher in a New England small town, overcoming local anti-Semitic feelings through his generosity and gentle nature. The only persistent hatred comes from the town's mayor, but Solomon is able to mitigate the situation when he finds evidence that the mayor has hidden his own Jewish origins. A silent motion picture version was released in 1924.
