Maxine Elliott on US tour in Myself-Bettini; and is divorced from Nat. C. Goodwin, 1908 ‘Philadelphia. Sept. 21 [1908]
‘Maxine Elliott, in her new play by Rachel Crothers, Myself-Bettini, appeared this evening at the Adelphi Theatre, to a large and fashionable audience. The characters in the plot are two brothers, the elder a minister and the younger a worldling, and two sisters. Mamie, the younger, lives in the minister’s home as a member of the family, and Bettini, the elder, has been in Pairs, studying for grand opera. Bettini’s advanced ideas on her return home, though she is a true woman at heart, furnish the basis of an interesting story. A special feature is a Salome dance, introduced by Bettini (Maxine Elliott), at a church social. The support introduces Julian L’Estrange, Gertrude Berkley, Susanne Perry and Lois Frances Clark.’

Nat Goodwin Gets Divorce.
‘Nat C. Goodwin was granted a decree of divorce from Bessie Demot Goodwin (Maxine Elliott), by judge W.H.A. Pike, at Reno, Nev., on Oct. 2, on the grounds of desertion. There was no opposition to the action.’
(The New York Dramatic Mirror, New York, Saturday, 10 October 1908, p.5c)
