The Girl and the Judge

   Clyde Fitch s four-act drama opened on 4 December 1901 at the Lyceum Theatre for 125 performances, produced by Charles Frohman. Based on an actual incident Fitch heard from an Ohio judge, the play follows Winifred Stanton, who stays with her kleptomaniac mother when her parents separate. Winifred becomes engaged to Chartris, a young judge. After Winifred's mother swipes jewelry from her fiance's mother, Winifred compels her mother to confess. The erring mother is taken to a sanitarium, leaving Chartris and Winifred free to marry. Annie Russell won positive reviews as Winifred. The cast also included Mrs. McKee Rankin and Mrs. G. H.
