Outside looking in

   Maxwell Anderson's satiric drama based upon Jim Tully's Beggars of Life opened on 7 September 1925 at the Greenwich Village Theatre and ran for 113 performances. A cross-section of down-and-out humanity travels cross-country in a railroad boxcar where the action includes a trial in which the good guy (played by James Cagney) is found guilty. An older hobo, played by Charles Bickford, takes a protective interest in the young man and helps him to get away with the girl he loves, a waif who killed her stepfather for turning her to prostitution.
