- The Gentleman from Mississippi
- Harrison Rhodes and Thomas A. Wise wrote the comedy, which opened on 29 September 1908 at the Bijou and ran for 407 performances. Wise played the gentlemanly laid-back southern senator, who forms a friendship with a snappy reporter (Douglas Fairbanks). Together they foil the plans of some corrupt congressmen. According to the New York Times review (30 September 1908): "The audience laughed until its sides ached, and then it laughed some more."
