Victorien Sardou

Victorien Sardou (1831 – 1908) was a French dramatist. He is best remembered today for his development, along with Eugène Scribe, of the well-made play.
He also wrote several plays that were made into popular 19th-century operas such as La Tosca (1887) on which Giacomo Puccini's opera Tosca (1900) is based, and Fedora by Umberto Giordano, a work that popularized the fedora hat as well (despite known to be wearing a beret himself!).
