The Play Pictorial no. 198, 1918 – The Title
I have been searching for this issue of The Play Pictorial for years, and now I have got it. So rare, so beautiful! The whole magazine is about Arnold Bennett’s play The Title, produced at the Royalty Theatre, London, in 1918. Leslie Howard played the role of John Culver, one of his first important stage performances. I am happy to share this document with all Leslie Howard fans.
There are several beautiful photos of the cast, including some pictures of Leslie alone and with other actors. John Culver, his character, was a schoolboy, not yet eighteen, but Leslie was already twenty-five, and the happy father of a boy, Ronald.
