George S. Kaufman was a playwright, theater and movie director, producer, and drama critic, and winner of two Pulitzer Prizes. From 1921 through 1958, there was at least one play written or directed on Broadway by Kaufman. Having written 45 plays, he was considered the most successful playwright of the American theater during Broadway's "Golden Years." What Eugene O'Neill was to the face of tragedy, Kaufman was to the face of comedy at that time, and still. If you are to be judged by the company you keep, he must be held in the highest esteem, having co-written plays with Edna Ferber, Moss Hart, Ring Lardner, Ira Gershwin, Morrie Ryskind and the Marx Brothers.
