Marcus (Marc) Connelly, born to actor and hotelier Patrick Joseph Connelly and actress Mabel Louise Cook, was born in McKeesport, Pennsylvania, on 13th December 1890.

Connelly became a journalist with the Pittsburgh Sun-Telegraph until he moved to New York City where he worked as a drama critic. In 1919 Connelly began taking lunch with a group of young writers in the dining room at the Algonquin Hotel. One of the members, Murdock Pemberton, later recalled that he owner of the hotel, Frank Case, did what he could to encourage this gathering: "From then on we met there nearly every day, sitting in the south-west corner of the room. If more than four or six came, tables could be slid along to take care of the newcomers. we sat in that corner for a good many months... Frank Case, always astute, moved us over to a round table in the middle of the room and supplied free hors d'oeuvre. That, I might add, was no means cement for the gathering at any time... The table grew mainly because we then had common interests. We were all of the theatre or allied trades." Case admitted that he moved them to a central spot at a round table in the Rose Room, so others could watch them enjoy each other's company.

This group eventually became known as the Algonquin Round Table. Other regulars at these lunches included George S. Kaufman, Robert E. Sherwood, Dorothy Parker, Robert Benchley, Alexander Woollcott, Heywood Broun, Harold Ross, Franklin Pierce Adams, Donald Ogden Stewart, Edna Ferber, Ruth Hale, Jane Grant, Neysa McMein, Alice Duer Miller, Charles MacArthur, Marc Connelly, Frank Crowninshield, John Peter Toohey, Lynn Fontanne, Alfred Lunt and Ina Claire.

Connelly was an important figure in the early days of the group: "We all lived rather excitedly and passionately. In those days, everything was of vast importance or only worthy of quick dismissal. We accepted each other - the whole crowd of us. I suppose there was a corps of about twenty or so who were intimate. We all ate our meals together, and lived in a very happy microcosm....We all shared one another's love for bright talk, contempt for banality, and the dedication to the use of whatever talents we had to their best employment."

Connelly claims that the group spent a lot of time at the studio of Neysa McMein. "The world in which we moved was small, but it was churning with a dynamic group of young people who included Robert C. Benchley, Robert S. Sherwood, Ring Lardner, Dorothy Parker, Franklin. P. Adams, Heywood, Broun, Edna Ferber, Alice Duer Miller, Harold Ross, Jane Grant, Frank Sullivan, and Alexander Woollcott. We were together constantly. One of the habitual meeting places was the large studio of New York's preeminent magazine illustrator, Marjorie Moran McMein, of Muncie, Indiana. On the advice of a nurnerologist, she concocted a new first name when she became a student at the Chicago Art Institute. Neysa McMein. Neysa's studio on the northeast corner of Sixth Avenue and Fifty-seventh Street was crowded all day by friends who played games and chatted with their startlingly beautiful young hostess as one pretty girl model after another posed for the pastel head drawings that would soon delight the eyes of America on the covers of such periodicals as the Ladies' Home Journal, Cosmopolitan, The American and The Saturday Evening Post."

Connelly joined up with George S. Kaufman to write Dulcy. The story is based on an idea by Franklin Pierce Adams and starred Lynn Fontanne as Dulcinea Smith. It opened at the Frazee Theatre in New York City on 13th August 1921. According to Caldwell Titcomb, "Dulcinea Smith is a witless, bromidic, meddlesome but well-meaning woman with a mania for engineering other people's lives. She gives a weekend house-party, and manages to have a finger in every pie and a foot in every mouth. She tries to fix her husband's business deals and do a little matchmaking on the side. She spouts cliches and misquotations with amazing volubility."

Howard Teichmann claims that "what was revolutionary about Dulcy was that it blew up a balloon labeled business, held it up for the audience to laugh at, and then stuck the sharp pin of satire into the balloon - and when it burst the audience laughed even harder." It was considered to be a new style of comedy that Broadway audiences liked and it was a great box-office success.

Malcolm Goldstein, the author of George S. Kaufman: His Life, His Theater (1979) has argued: "To be young and talented and living in New York in the 1920s, with money to spend and the promise of more of it to come - this, the happy situation of Kaufman and Connelly after the opening of Dulcy, was the best life imaginable. Connelly thought it was as fantastic as a child's dream of pleasure in which the whole sky was filled with balloons and anyone could pull down as many as he wished."

Connelly and Kaufman enjoyed the experience of writing a hit play and decided to carry on with this experiment. They usually met at Connelly's place in the Algonquin Hotel. They would at first discuss the structure of the play and then go away and write alternative scenes. They then would meet and compare them. Kaufman would usually have the job of turning the work into a final script. This resulted in four more plays, To the Ladies (1922), Merton of the Movies (1922), The Deep Tangled Wildwood (1923) and Beggar on Horseback (1924).

Kaufman found it difficult to work with Connelly and complained that he was constantly late for work. The two men were unable to recapture the success of Dulcy and in 1924 the two men decided to end their partnership. Connelly later admitted: "When each of us decided to do a play on his own, the decision ended only our constant professional association. We never ended our friendship."

Connelly's next two plays, The Wisdom Tooth (1926) and The Wild Man of Borneo (1927) did not have long runs. Connelly then adapted Ol' Man Adam an' His Chillun (1928), a collection of stories written by Roark Bradford, for the theatre. The first production of The Green Pastures took place at the Mansfield Theatre on 26th February, 1930. It featured numerous African American spirituals arranged by Hall Johnson and performed by the Hall Johnson Choir. The musical, which had a run of 640 performances, was the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1930.

Other plays by Connelly included Having Wonderful Time (1937), The Two Bouquets (1938), Everywhere I Roam (1938), The Happiest Days (1939), The Flowers of Virtue (1942), Our Town (1944), Hope for the Best (1945), Sleepy Hollow (1948), A Story for Strangers (1948), The Solid Gold Cadillac (1953) and Tall Story (1959).

Connelly appeared in several films including The Spirit of St. Louis (1957) and Tall Story (1960). He also published his memoirs, Voices Offstage (1968).

Marc Connelly died on 21st December 1980.

The world in which we moved was small, but it was churning with a dynamic group of young people who included Robert C. Neysa's studio on the northeast corner of Sixth Avenue and Fifty-seventh Street was crowded all day by friends who played games and chatted with their startlingly beautiful young hostess as one pretty girl model after another posed for the pastel head drawings that would soon delight the eyes of America on the covers of such periodicals as the Ladies' Home

Journal, Cosmopolitan, The American and The Saturday Evening Post.

At times every newsstand sparkled with half a dozen of Neysa's beauties. Any afternoon at her studio you might encounter Jascha Heifetz, the violin prodigy, now grown up and beginning his adult career; Arthur Samuels, composer and wit who was soon to collaborate with Fritz Kreisler on the melodious operetta Apple Blossoms and a few years later became managing editor of The New Yorker; Janet Flanner, blazing with personality, later, over several decades, a journalistic legend as Genet, Paris correspondent of The New Yorker; and John Peter Toohey, a gentle free-lance press agent, deeply loved by everyone who ever crossed his path. Toohey wrote stories for The Saturday Evening Post and collaborated on a successful comedy entitled Swiftly. John was the acknowledged founder of the Thanatopsis Inside Straight Literary and Chowder Club and a target of many harmless practical jokes. One would also see Sally Farnham, the sculptress, whose studio was in the same building. Today one of her great works stands almost around the corner from her old workshop. It is the heroic equestrian statue of Simon Bolivar at the Sixth Avenue entrance to Central Park. Another habituee was the most photographed society beauty of that time, the beautiful Julia Hoyt. Among Neysa's noteworthy full-figure portraits in oil were those of Julia and Janet Flanner.

There was always a cluster of young actresses. Margalo and Ruth Gillmore, Winifred Lenihan, Tallulah Bankhead, Myra Hampton, and Lenore Ulric. Despite the near-bedlam about her, Neysa's eyes never left her work. At the end of a day and the completion of another delicately executed magazine cover, Neysa's smock and face would be smeared with chalk and paint. She would disappear and five minutes later rejoin us fresh as a flower, ready to listen, entertain, and be entertained. After five o'clock the big studio would be crowded with her cronies, many engaged in daily sessions of poker, crap, backgammon, and cribbage. Samuels or someone else would be at the piano.

Kaufman and Connelly did very well. As collaborating playwrights, Connelly was a whimsical optimist and Kaufman was the cynical pessimist.

A perfect example of their teamwork was an incident in New Haven in 1922, following the opening of their fourth play, Merton of the Movies. At the first reading in New York, the actors had sat in the chillness of an unheated theatre, their chairs placed on the stage so that they faced the authors, the producer, the director, and the darkened footlights. The murkiness of the empty theatre, scarcely lit by a single work light, brightened noticeably when Glenn Hunter read a line that seemed so hilarious the entire cast broke up with laughter. During every rehearsal, the company fell apart, the stage manager dropped his prompt book; it was the laugh line of the play. But in New Haven, with an audience out front, Glenn Hunter uncorked the line and there was silence.

Later in the hotel, Kaufman began, "Now about that line, Marc."

"It's the best line in the show," Connelly said.

"Yes," said Kaufman, "the only thing is that it doesn't go." "Now let me tell you why it's funny, George."

And Connelly launched into the comedic situation preceding the line. "She knows the fellow when he comes in. So when he says his line, she knows he's lying and the audience knows it, and when she says her line, his line has to work."

Kaufman listened patiently, "Then, what is your conclusion, Marc?"

"I think it's a very funny line."

So they tried it the next night. Nothing. At the matinee, still nothing. Following each performance,

Connelly would explain why it was a great line.

After listening to six explanations, Kaufman finally said, "Well, Marc, there's only one thing we can do."

"What's that?"

"We've got to call the audience in tomorrow morning for a ten o'clock rehearsal."


McKeesport's Marc Connelly won the 1930 Pulitzer Prize in Drama for The Green Pastures.

Marc Connelly was born in 1890 in McKeesport, Pennsylvania. Connelly attended Trinity Hall, in Washington, Pennsylvania, from 1902 to 1907. Connelly was a journalist in Pittsburgh early in his career and went on to be a playwright who is most famous for his Pulitzer Prize winning play The Green Pastures in 1930. Late in his career he wrote memoirs and novels. Connelly died in 1980 in New York, New York.

Marc Connelly was born on December 13, 1890, in McKeesport, Pennsylvania. Connelly was the son of Patrick Joseph, an actor and hotel owner, and Mabel Louise, an actress. Connelly attended Trinity Hall, in Washington, PA, from 1902 to 1907. Connelly also taught drama courses at Yale University later in his life. Early in his career, however, Connelly spent several years working as a journalist in Pittsburgh. Marc Connelly then moved to New York and became a New York theatre critic. Connelly was shortly married from 1930 to 1935 to silent film actress Madeline Hurlock, but they divorced five years later.

Connelly's career as a playwright quickly followed as he collaborated with George S. Kaufman. Their work included such Broadway hits as Dulcy in 1921, To the Ladies in 1922, Merton of the Movies in 1922, and Beggar on Horseback in 1924. All of these plays were later made into films. Connelly is best known for his Pulitzer Prize winning play The Green Pastures (1930). This play was a based on Roark Bradford's book Ol' Man Adam an' His Chillun from 1928. The play was a fantasy of biblical history presented in terms of the religious life of Southern African Americans. The play has two parts: the first part is from the Creation to the Flood, and the second is from the story of Moses to the Crucifixion. The play has a series of biblical stories that are told from an African American perspective. The theme throughout the play is that man eternally sins and is either punished or renounced by God. The play had seventy-one performances at the 44th Street Theatre in New York, New York. Later, Warner Brothers asked Connelly to direct the 1936 film version of this play, although he played little part in the production. Although the play had initial success, the play's revival 15 years later closed quickly. Even by current standards of criticism, what distinguishes the play is its scope, and it holds a position as one of the important plays in American drama.

From this success, Connelly moved onto the next stage of his life as an actor. In the late 1950s Connelly made his on-camera debut in Tall Story. Connelly was nominated for a Tony Award in 1959 for Best Featured Actor in a play. Connelly lost to Jason Robards Jr. for his role in The Disenchanted.

Connelly was a member of many foundations including: American Federation of TV & Radio Artists, Authors League of America (of which he was a past president), National Institute of Arts and Letters (of which he was a president from 1953 to 1956), Actors Equity Association, Dramatists Guild (of which he was a founding member), Screen Actors Guild, Players Club in New York, New York, Dutch Treat Club in New York, New York, and the Savage Club in London.

Connelly wrote his memoirs in 1965. That same year he also published his first novel, A Souvenir from Quam, which mocked spy stories. Connelly will always be remembered for his Pulitzer Prize-winning play The Green Pastures in 1930.

Connelly died on December 21, 1980, in New York, New York.

The group’s first meeting began as a joke

Many of the members of what would become known as the Round Table had served as news correspondents in World War I, including Alexander Woollcott. Woollcott’s ceaseless boasting about his exploits overseas grew so tiresome that a group of friends decided to take him down a notch. In June 1919, they invited a group of fellow critics and writers to an afternoon party at the Algonquin Hotel, near New York City’s theater district.

The group proceeded to roast Woollcott, poking fun at his braggadocio and outsized personality. But rather than be offended by their ribbing, Woollcott was delighted by the attention. And the group decided to meet the next day for lunch, launching a nearly decade-long stint at the hotel. They were at first seated at a long table in the hotel’s Pergola room, but Frank Case, the hotel’s savvy manager soon moved them to a round table in the Rose Room.

Connelly was born to actor and hotelier Patrick Joseph Connelly and actress Mabel Louise Cook in McKeesport, Pennsylvania. He began writing plays at the age of five, and would later become a journalist for the Pittsburgh Sun-Telegraph until he moved to New York City. In 1919 he joined the Algonquin Round Table.

Connelly had contributed to several Broadway musicals before teaming up with his most important collaborator, George S. Kaufman, in 1921. During their four-year partnership, they wrote five comedies – Dulcy (1921), To the Ladies (1922), Merton of the Movies (1922), The Deep Tangled Wildwood (1923) and Beggar on Horseback (1924) – and also co-directed and contributed sketches to the 1922 revue The '49ers, collaborated on the book to the musical comedy Helen of Troy, New York (1923), and wrote both the book and lyrics for another musical comedy, Be Yourself (1924).

Connelly received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for The Green Pastures in 1930. The play, a re-telling of the Old Testament, was a landmark in American drama boasting the first all-black Broadway cast. He contributed verse and articles to Life, Everybody's, and other magazines.

Connelly was one of the wittiest members of the Algonquin Round Table. He said, "I always knew children were anti-social. But the children of the West Side – they're savage."

In 1968, Connelly published his memoirs, Voices Offstage. Over the years, Connolly appeared as an actor in 21 movies, including The Spirit of St. Louis (1957) with James Stewart.

A film about the Round Table members, The Ten-Year Lunch (1987), won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature and featured Connelly, who was the last survivor. The 1994 film Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle, a fictional account of the group, featured actor Matt Malloy as Connelly.


Marc Connelly and William Keighley’s The Green Pastures (1936)

The Green Pastures imagines Heaven inhabited only by African Americans at an eternal fish-fry-picnic. It’s a faithful adaptation of Ol’ Man Adam , Roark Bradford’s racist version of the Old Testament episodes told from a supposed African American perspective.

There are three versions of The Green Pastures, all by White men: the book by Roark Bradford, the play by Marc Connelly, and the film directed d by Connolly and Willliam Keighley. In Bradford’s text, God is a White plantation master who wears a crown. In the play and film, racial stereotyping is diffused by engaging an African American cast and portraying God as a cigar-smoking African American.

The story’s context is explained when a Preacher his Sunday bible school class. He introduces the children to the image of Heaven as a place of picnicky pleasures: “Sho, dey had the nicest kind of picnics. Dey probably had fish frys, wid b’ild custard and ten cent seegars for the adults. God gives us human lotsa ideas about havin’ good times. Maybe dey were things he’d seen de angels do. Yes, sire, I bet dey had a fish fry every week.” Thus Heaven!

Heaven’s portrayal begins with an array of African American angels’ visual presence with white wings dressed in brightly colored robes preparing for their eternal fish-fry picnic. On a bank of puffy white clouds (like cotton balls), angelic fishers sit waiting with their rods. Below, under a canopy of live oaks on the great lawn, preparations for the fish fry are in progress. The scene suggests an Ante-bellum plantation mansion surrounded by a white picket fence replacing the traditional Pearly Gates.

Connelly’s accepted Bradford stereotyping and confused inherently racist fiction with real African Americans. It’s an example of unintentional racism. “The Green Pastures,” Connelly wrote, “is an attempt to present certain aspects of a living religion in terms of its believers. The religion is that of thousands of Negroes in the Deep South. With terrific spiritual hunger and the greatest humility these untutored black Christians—many of whom cannot even read the book which is the treasure house of their faith—have adapted the contents of the Bible to the consistencies of their every-day lives.”

Maybe a pile of explanations ought to be written explaining this mishmash? View the film and see it for yourself.

Hey Marc. My dad Ray was Bill's brother. I have 2 sisters, Laurie and Adrienne, and a brother Daryl. Yes, I have some awesome memories. Dad owned a marina in Port Clinton Ohio, and whenever Uncle Bill raced in Detroit, he brought the boat to Sugar Rock and of course the people around here freaked. Then we would take a family trip on dad's boat up to the Detroit River, catch the race, and hang with family. Many many great years. I was probably 12 when I first met Aunt Fran and saw her in Detroit 2 years ago.. I still communicate with Wil and Edward from time to time, not much contact with Dorian or Ken, geographic reasons only.

(laughing). I see you built an '82 Atlas as I did. Mine took me 400 hours, about 1200 bucks and was perfect down to the brush stroke. I watched in horror as it lost reception, and crashed into the rocks. Stupidly I tried to re-start my KB .87 only to watch it literally blow up. I still have it in the shed with boxes marked Christmas laying on top of it. Gotta love the sick humor.

Anyway.. I'm glad Uncle Bill is not forgotten. I do have more stories for another day. The best, Steve

Nice picture. I am looking forward to next season. I need to get some good pictures of my

"White Knife" running this year. I hope to have the nose fixed by the model show and have her there to display. Merry Christmas!

Rex Ingram’s glowing personality is a thoroughly satisfying and convincing Lawd. Ingram’s is a yeoman protean contribution, as he also personates Adam and Hezdrel, his images re-created on earth.

The very essence of Green Pastures is the Sabbath school. It’s the Harlem version of the Old Testament, as the pastor word-paints the mood of De Lawd from Genesis to Exodus and beyond.

Oscar Polk as Gabriel – whom De Lawd colloquially addresses as Gabe – is a human and humorous archangel who efficiently and matter-of-factly sees that De Lawed’s will be done, and without the slightest hitches.

Punctuating all the Biblical background are mundane references to gay fishfries, ten cent seegars, generous fishing and plenty of milk-and-honey for the good folks, yet it’s all in fine taste and with due regard to proportions and standards of all races and creeds.

Marc Connelly and William Keighley – the latter the more remarkable in view of his previous specialization in gangster mellers – rate most of the bends for their distinguished transition of the play to the screen.

Frank Wilson’s Moses George Reed’s Mr Deshee Edna M. Harris and Al Stokes as Zeba and Cain, a couple of hot potatoes, she a uke-strumming slut and he a fancy man Ernest Whitman, impressive as the regally arrogant Pharaoh plus the Hall Johnson choir, are among other stand-outs.
