The Gentleman from Mississippi

   Harrison Rhodes and Thomas A. Wise wrote the comedy, which opened on 29 September 1908 at the Bijou and ran for 407 performances. Wise played the gentlemanly laid-back southern senator, who forms a friendship with a snappy reporter (Douglas Fairbanks). Together they foil the plans of some corrupt congressmen. According to the New York Times review (30 September 1908): "The audience laughed until its sides ached, and then it laughed some more."
