Twentieth Century is a play by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur based on the unproduced play Napoleon of Broadway by Charles B. Millholland, inspired by his experience working for the eccentric Broadway impresario David Belasco .

The Hecht-MacArthur comedy is set in the observation car of the 20th Century Limited , travelling from Chicago to New York's Grand Central Terminal . Aboard the luxury train are egomaniacal theatre producer Oscar Jaffe, desperately in need of a hit, and his former paramour and protégé, temperamental actress Lily Garland (born Mildred Plotka), who abandoned him for a Hollywood career. Oscar is determined to sign her for his new show, and Lily is just as determined to ignore his advances, both professional and personal.

The first Broadway production, directed by George Abbott , opened on December 29, 1932 at the Broadhurst Theatre , where it ran for 152 performances. Moffat Johnston and Eugenie Leontovich were the stars, with William Frawley in a featured role. [1] It was adapted for a critically acclaimed film adaptation of the same name two years later.

20th Century Fox , in full 20th Century Fox Film Corporation , also spelled Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation , formerly (1935–85) Twentieth Century–Fox Film Corporation , major American film studio formed in 1935 by the merger of Twentieth Century Pictures and the Fox Film Corporation. Since 2013 it has been a subsidiary of 21st Century Fox. Headquarters are in Los Angeles .

A noteworthy development during this period was the creation of 20th Century Fox Television in 1949. However, it was a separate company from the film studio.

In 1953 Twentieth Century–Fox introduced CinemaScope , the process by which a picture is projected on a screen two and a half times as wide as it is high; the company’s first wide-screen feature film, The Robe (1953), began the trend toward the use of wide screens in motion-picture theatres. Twentieth Century–Fox was the studio that brought Marilyn Monroe to stardom in the 1950s. Among the studio’s most successful musicals of the decade were The King and I (1956) and South Pacific (1958).
