In this program, the playwright is listed in parenthesis and only includes his last name. The playwright’s name is Lewis Beach. In this case, it’s not immediately obvious where to locate the playwright’s name. Furthermore, Lewis Beach isn’t the only playwright. In fact, Anthony Coldeway and Walter Woods are also credited with writing the play. The Arden Club’s program should have included all playwrights to properly give credit to those who contributed to writing the play. The Goose Hangs High is originally a silent comedy film released in 1925. This film was still relatively new when the Arden Club performed this in 1926.
