CAST OF CHARACTERS
"CHIMMIE FADDEN" is one of the most famous Irish−American characters ever created. He first appeared before the public in a series of newspaper stories by E. W. Townsend. These stories became the foundation of a book which sold in vast quantities and of a play which was popular for years, make "Chimmie" literally a national figure.
"Chimmie" is a Bowery boy of the rough but good-hearted type. He saves a rich young woman of slumming tendencies from the insults of a "masher" and thus becomes a footman in the household of millionaire Van Cortlandt, accepting the position because he has become fascinated by the young lady's French mid, whom he dubs "The Duchess." The complications of the story cause "Chimmie" to be accused of burglary, but he is finally proved innocent and his love story with the beautiful lady's maid has a happy conclusion.
"Chimmie Fadden" is a document of New York life truly worthy of being preserved in photodramatic form. The natural eccentricities of the character give the play a rare individuality.
