A bit about Alexander Woollcott ...

Alexander Humphreys Woollcott (January 19, 1887 January 23, 1943) was a critic and commentator for The New Yorker magazine, and a member of the Algonquin Round Table. He was the inspiration for Sheridan Whiteside, the main character in the play The Man Who Came to Dinner by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart. His review of the Marx Brothers' Broadway debut, I'll Say She Is, helped launch the team's movie career. For many years he wrote a column called "Shouts and Murmurs" for The New Yorker, as well as being its drama critic. He was, however, frequently criticized for his ornate, florid style of writing and, in contrast to his contemporaries James Thurber and S.J. Perelman, he is little read today.
