Join author Richard Schwartz as we celebrate the release of his new book "The Man Who Lit Lady Liberty: The Extraordinary Rise and Fall of Actor M.B. Curtis" from Heyday Books! Jewish immigrant actor M.B. Curtis' fascinating life story contains great success and great disappointments. Curtis rose to stardom as the first American Jewish actor to portray a Jewish character on stage in America, using his charisma and comedic talents to overcome common stereotypes and prejudices of the time. But his influence spread beyond the stage.
