Eva Lovelace, would-be actress trying to crash the New York stage, is a wildly optimistic chatterbox full of theatrical mannerisms. Her looks, more than her talent, attract the interest of a paternal actor, a philandering producer, and an earnest playwright. Is she destined for stardom or the "casting couch"? Will she fade after the brief blooming of a "morning glory"? Written by

Did You Know?
The four portraits that Eva sees in the theatre are of Maude Adams, Ethel Barrymore
, Sarah Bernhardt
and John Drew. Sarah Bernhardt is well-known in her own right even now. The portrait of John Drew is likely to be of John Drew Jr (1853-1927) rather than John Drew Sr (1827-1862) (an American actor of the early 1800s). John Drew Jr was a renowned American actor of the late 1800s, the leading matinée idol of his time. Maude Adams (1872-1953) was one of the most popular American actresses of the 1890s and early 1900s, achieving great fame in J. M. Barrie's plays. Drew Jr and Adams worked together for 5 years from 1892, achieving great success and making Adams a star. Ethel Barrymore (1879-1959), with brothers Lionel and John, was one of the Barrymore siblings who achieved greatness on the American Stage and in films. The Barrymore siblings were the niece and nephews of John Drew Jr. See more
