Turn to the right!

Turn to the right!
   John Golden and Winchell Smith produced Smith and John E. Hazzard's three-act comedy on 18 August 1916 at the Gaiety Theatre for 435 performances. Joe Bascom, recently released from prison for a crime he did not commit, returns to his mother's peach farm with two fellow prisoners, Muggs and Gilly, who are determined to go straight. However, when Joe learns that villainous Deacon Tillinger is planning to foreclose the mortgage on his mother's struggling farm, he prevails upon Muggs and Gilly to help. They crack Tillinger's safe, steal enough money to pay off the mortgage, and pickpocket the cash from Tillinger's pocket and return it to his safe. June Mathis adapted the play for a 1922 silent motion picture. A 1981 musical adaptation failed out of town.
