Summary

Photograph of Wallace Ford (left) and Broderick Crawford in the original Broadway production of Of Mice and Men, which cited the production for excellence in the theatre
Caption reads as follows:Because last November we saw Of Mice and Men, as John Steinbeck had adapted it himself and as George Kaufman had staged it. Because we were galvanized by the stark reality, the truth, and the inevitable forward lunge of what we were seeing. Because Wallace Ford played George simply, out of a deep understanding. Because Broderick Crawford played Lennie, the huge, pathetic moron—the part they said nobody could play—with such quiet skill. Because we went home knowing that we had seen a great story, superbly told.
