Twin beds

   This three-act Salisbury Field and Margaret Mayo farce opened on 14 August 1914 at the Fulton Theatre for 411 performances. Drunken Italian tenor Signor Monti wanders by mistake into the hotel room of Blanche and Harry Hawkins. He has disrobed for the night when Blanche arrives, initiating considerable confusion since the maid has sent Monti's clothes to be cleaned and Harry arrives in a fury. When Monti's wife turns up as well, confusion reigns. There were no less than three motion picture versions (1920, 1929, 1942), the last starring Joan Bennett and George Brent.
