Als David Belasco und Henry C. Demille sich im Sommer 188 an die Arbeit für ein neues Stück machten, wussten Sie bereits, dass ein bestimmter Schauspieler im Mittelpunkt stehen würde, und der Erfolg des Stückes ruhig auf seiner Bühnenpräsenz aufbauen durfte. Der Schauspieler E.H. Sothern hat mit großem Erfolg Rollen von schrulligen Engländern gespielt und war darauf regelrecht abonniert. Im Juli 1888 war das Stück soweit fertig, dass die beiden Autoren an ihren Hauptdarsteller herantraten, der sich in inzwischen aber anders überlegt hatte, und die Rolle nun nicht mehr spielen wollte.
