George Kaufman at the Garden of Allah hotel
George Kaufman was an American playwright, theater director and producer, humorist, and drama critic, most notably writing for the Marx Brothers and winning the Pulitzer Prize for “You Can’t Take It With You” (1937), and the Tony Award as a Director, for the musical “Guys and Dolls. He found himself in the center of a scandal in 1936 when the former husband of actress Mary Astor threatened to publish her diaries purportedly containing extremely explicit details of an affair between Kaufman and the actress. To avoid a subpoena, Kaufman left the Garden of Allah by stuffing himself in the back of a laundry truck.
