Glass, Montague: Abe and Mawruss. v1. 22 Jul 2013
Montague Glass (born Marsden) (1877–1934) was an English-born United States dramatist and short story writer.
He was brought to America while very young and began his career by contributing to various magazines. All his successful plays were collaborations, and many of them were based on his stories about a pair of comic Jewish business partners: Potash and Perlmutter (1913), written with Charles Klein; Abe and Mawruss (1915), written with Roi Cooper Megrue; and four with Jules Eckert Goodman: Business before Pleasure (1917), His Honor Abe Potash (1919), Partners Again (1922), and Potash and Perlmutter, Detectives (1926). Although several of his other plays received favorable notices, they had short runs.
"I come down on the subway with Max Linkheimer this morning, Mawruss," Abe Potash said to his partner, Morris Perlmutter, as they sat in the showroom one hot July morning. "That feller is a regular philantropist."
"I bet yer," Morris replied. "He would talk a tin ear on to you if you only give him a chance. Leon Sammet too, Abe, I assure you. I seen Leon in the Harlem Winter Garden last night, and the goods he sold while he was talking to me and Barney Gans, Abe, in two seasons we don't do such a business. Yes, Abe; Leon Sammet is just such another one of them fellers like Max Linkheimer."
