The Squall

The Squall
   Jean Bart's three-act drama opened on 11 November 1926 for 444 performances at the 48th Street Theatre. Nubi, a gypsy girl, is taken in by the Mendez family, but disrupts the household by her flirtations with its male members. The play's long run is explained, in part, by efforts of Leblang's Ticket Agency to promote ticket sales for this lurid show. Myrna Loy played Nubi in a 1929 motion picture version.
