Trivia:

During the dress rehearsals for "Carousel", which is based on Molnar's "Liliom", he entered the theater to watch. Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II were terrified that Molnar would be very disapproving of any changes they had made in the play, and especially of their new final scene. Instead, Molnár was ecstatic about the show and declared that he liked the new ending best of all. See more »
