Orestes U. Bean
Beans major work was the play Corianton: An Aztec Romance based on the novel Corianton by B. H. Roberts and the novel A Ship of Hagoth by Julia A. MacDonald. Starting in 1902 Bean directed and produced the play in Utah. He managed to run it for six performances on Braodway in 1912. He was also closely involved with it being made into a film as Corianton: An Unholy Lovestory although he did not like the result and sued Lester Parks over the matter.
