The Cat and the Canary
- Playwright John Willard achieved his only Broadway success with this long-running (349 performances) comedy-mystery thriller, which opened on 7 February 1922 at the National Theatre. Florence Eldridge played the ingénue who claims her inheritance after spending a night in a creepy mansion where it turns out that the frightening apparitions were orchestrated by conniving relatives who hoped to drive her insane.
