Wow, somehow I never knew that this was made into a movie.

For a second there, I thought it said Larry Fine (aka Larry from the 3 Stooges), which would have given the play a completely different tone.

I saw a local production of this here in Houston back in 2010 that was extraordinary. That group (The Catastrophic Theatre) has done several Shawn plays, including Marie & Bruce, Our Late Night, and The Hotel Play.
