1934-11-20The Children's Hour Opens in New York City

The Children’s Hour, a play by Lillian Hellman, opens in New York City. The play revolves around the accusation by a student that two teachers in the school are lesbians. The play received strongly positive reviews and was a hit on Broadway. The first movie version of it, in 1936, eliminated the lesbian content, but a remake, in 1961, restored the original story line.
