Glass, Montague: Elkan Lubliner, American. v1. 23 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.
"NU, PHILIP," cried Marcus Polatkin to his partner, Philip Scheikowitz, as they sat in the showroom of their place of business one June morning, "even if the letter does got bad news in it you shouldn't take on so hard. When a feller is making good over here and the Leute im Russland hears about it, understand me, they are all the time sending him bad news. I got in Minsk a cousin by the name Pincus Lubliner, understand me, which every time he writes me, y'understand, a relation dies on him and he wants me I should help pay funeral expenses. You might think I was a Free Burial Society, the way that feller acts."
