Playwright Maxwell Anderson, born this day in 1888. Anderson’s first Broadway success was “What Price Glory,” a gritty, obscenity-laden look at World War II. Anderson also had success with a series of plays based on events in the life of King Henry VIII-Anne of the Thousand Days, which became an Oscar-winning movie with Richard Burton and Genevieve Bujold; Elizabeth the Queen, which was adapted as The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex, starring Bette Davis and Errol Flynn; and Mary of Scotland, which was made into a film starring Katharine Hepburn and Fredric March.
