Eugene O'Neill - LIFE STORIES
 
 
1/9/1323     Marco Polo in Xanadu and New York
On this day in 1324 Marco Polo died in Venice. The Travels of Marco Polo, dictated by Polo several years after his return from decades in the land of Kublai Khan, became an influential book in Renaissance Europe -- though some publishers were so dubious of the hyperbole that they titled the book, "The Million Lies." The path to Xanadu led to New York via Eugene O'Neill: his Marco Millions opened on Broadway, this day in 1928.
7/22/1941     O'Neill's Long Day's Journey
On this day in 1941, on his twelfth wedding anniversary, Eugene O'Neill presented the just-finished manuscript of Long Day's Journey Into Night to his wife, Carlotta, with a touching dedication. He later instructed his wife and his publisher that the play could not be printed until 25 years after his death, and not performed ever -- instructions which Carlotta overrode almost as soon as she got the chance.
