Screenwriter[edit]

It should be known, despite attempts to revert the edit, that "Monckton Hoffe" is merely a pseudonym for Preston Sturges, who wrote the screenplay alone. Hoffe does not exist. 74.67.124.111 (talk) 07:23, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Really? What about the credit list for Hoffe on IMDB, which indicates a date of birth (1880 in Ireland) and death (1951 in London), and this filmography on TCM? What about Hoffe's credits before Sturges was in the business? What about Monckton's Broadway credits beginning in 1910, when Sturges was 12 years old?

What's your source? Ed Fitzgerald (unfutz) (talk / cont) 23:15, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Then there's this article in the New York Times from 1910:

Monckton Hoffe's Impressions.; Newly Arrived British Playwright on Things New and Strange to Him -- He Asks Some Questions.

October 16, 1910, Sunday

Section: Drama Society Music, Page X2, 1809 words

MONCKTON HOFFE, author of "The Little Damozel," is having his first experience with American customs, habits, and hotels. He has been here for a week, and he likes the last named very much. He acknowledges being a sentimentalist with a leaven of opportunism, and he does not like warm weather.

It seems clear that Monckton Hoffe is a real person, not a pseudonym for Sturges. If you've got a source that says otherwise, can you please post it here so it can be checked out? Best to do that before you change the article again. Ed Fitzgerald (unfutz) (talk / cont) 23:21, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Card sharp or shark?[edit]

Wikipedia makes a distinction between a sharp (cheater) and a shark (legitimate player). Other sites are divided on whether there is a difference in meaning; however all agree on the definition of a sharp, so that's the one I used. Clarityfiend 03:03, 4 June 2006 (UTC)

Analysis[edit]

The analysis section hardly presents a neutral POV, and doesn't cite references. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.2.139.72 (talk) 06:36, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

IMDb and TCM[edit]

The heavy reliance on these sources is problematic and as much as possible, should be supplemented by verifiable reference sources. IMDb is especially egregious as the entries are written in a non-moderated forum. FWiW Bzuk (talk) 17:40, 17 November 2011 (UTC).
