Robert Benchley and the knights of the Algonquin ( visu )
4 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 172 libraries worldwide
American humorist and satirist Robert Benchley began as a writer, but when Hollywood came calling, he adapted some of his most amusing pieces for film. In these wry filmic explorations of the headaches of everyday married life, and of the common man overmatched by seemingly mundane tasks, Benchley is often spoofing himself and the sophisticated, witty literati who made up the legendary Algonquin round table. The collection features another member of that group, Alexander Woollcott, as a fussy nightclub patron, and Donald Ogden Stewart, playwright and screenwriter, as a serious lecturer on fantastical, farcical subjects. This collection pays homage to the spirit that animated the New York literary scene in the 1920s and '30s, as preserved by Hollywood for America's enjoyment
