By Candlelight[edit]

I believe it is incorrect to state Kuster translated "By Candlelight." I used to live in Carmel and was told by officials at The Golden Bough Playhouse that By Candlelight was by P. G. Wodehouse.

This link: http://tactnyc.org/salon_show.php?sid=29&id=330 contains the following statement:

"The play was adapted from the German language Kleine Komoedie by the playwright Siegfried Geyer. Set in Vienna around the turn of the century, the play was performed in the Weimer era at the Deutsches Nationaltheater in 1927. Brought to London in a translation by Graham John, the play was first produced in English, but under the title By Candlelight. Prolific producer Gilbert Miller changed the title to Candle-Light after hiring Wodehouse for the new translation."

I was always curious why the current Golden Bough company didn't hold a By Candlelight festival, remount the play for a weekend, and hire the town and fire department to stand guard during the entire period, to shake off the apparent curse of this play. It was while exploring this idea that I found out which "By Candlelight" was involved with the two previous fires.

I am not adding this information to the article because I am not familiar enough with the attribution rules, but perhaps someone can take what I've put here and insert the relevant information. roricka 17 Feb 2012 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Roricka (talkcontribs) 05:17, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

The program from the 1949 production states "Adapted by Edward Kuster from the German of Siegfried Geyer."[1] The blog which contained that image also has an unsourced quote which refers to Kuster as translator.[2] That probably doesn't meet the reliable source standard, but it does seem to indicate that this translation is separate from Wodehouse's translation. --GentlemanGhost (converse) 21:50, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

Non-compliant non-free files removed[edit]

I have removed several non-free files for failing WP:NFCC. They do not meet the requirements set forth by WP:NFCC. The files fail WP:NFCC#1,3,8. Do not re-add, if you want the removals reviewed file a WP:NFCR, where they will tell you the same thing. Yes the files are interesting and make the the article look better but they do not meet policy. If the files are re-added without a NFCR supporting the usage I will file an WP:ANI request for the user in question to be blocked for non-compliance with WP:NFCC. Just because you have a rationale doesnt mean that the file is acceptable. Werieth (talk) 19:16, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

This user was blocked indefinitely for abusive behavior, of which the above threat is an example. If the images did in fact meet the standard of WP:NFCC, please feel free to add them back. However, if they were indeed non-free content, please don't. Wikipedia needs to use free content in order that it may be distributed freely. --GentlemanGhost (converse) 02:02, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
