A Tailor-made man

   Harry James Smith had his greatest success with this four-act comedy based on Gabriel Dregley's German play when George M. Cohan produced it at the Cohan and Harris Theatre on 27 August 1917 for 398 performances. Grant Mitchell played John Bart, a tailor's assistant, who is in love with Tanya, the daughter of his boss. He reads a book written by Tanya's arrogant fiancé in which it is explained that success comes through elegant dress and personal charm. In a tuxedo appropriated from the tailor shop, John makes a social success, but his ruse is revealed. Tanya, however, has fallen in love with him and John returns to his job at the tailor shop. A 1922 silent motion picture version was remade as a "talkie," featuring William Haines, in 1931.
