A Word To The Wise

An insufferable lout becomes a national celebrity and proceeds to destroy himself and everything and everyone around him.

This is after he flies nonstop around the world. Think about history with Charles Lindbergh. In addition, a short intro to the story by Henry Fonda.

Jack ("Pal") Smurch has become shorthand for a hero, politician, or celebrity who, in person, turns out to be a lout or a stupid, rude, awkward person; a clumsy, ill-mannered boor; or an oaf.

Everyone who knows him knows what he's like, but everyone is reluctant to say anything about it.

A word to the wise means that Intelligent people can take hints; they don't need to have everything explained at great length... An insufferable lout becomes a national hero and destroys himself and everything, as well as everyone around him.



A hint or brief explanation is all that is required.

"typical restraints range from regulations to the occasional word to the wise."

A Word to the Wise is a 1770 comedy play by the Irish writer Hugh Kelly. It was his second work after 1767 hit False Delicacy. Kelly was a government supporter and an opponent of the radical John Wilkes. During the second performance of the play, a riot broke out amongst Wilkes' supporters at the Drury Lane Theatre, and the play was subsequently withdrawn. When it was published, Kelly wrote a lengthy introduction defending himself and complaining about political prejudice instead. It was the first play performed at The Theatre, Leeds, when it was opened on 24 May 1771. The American Company later staged it in North America.
