The Man of the hour

   George H. Broadhursts political melodrama, produced by William A. Brady and Joseph R. Grismer, opened on 4 December 1906 at the Savoy and ran for 479 performances. According to the New York Times (5 December 1906), "it is a familiar tale of love and duty, with incidentals of politics, stock manipulation, and judiciary corruption," but it entertained with good comic material in the mix of suspense and romance, as well as captivating performances by George Fawcett and Douglas Fairbanks.
