Sy Scholfield quotes from the biography, "Actor, the life and times of Paul Muni" by Jerome Lawrence (Putnam, 1974), p. 15: "They were a long way from Budapest and from the midwife [Muni's mother] Salche trusted on the night of September 22, 1895, when Muni was delivered by candlelight in a rooming house for itinerant players directly across the street from the city jail in Lemberg, Austraia. (The city is now Lvov ...). Salche and [Muni's father] Favel (she always called him by his second name) played until an hour before labor began. Their act was performed on boards across two wine barrels, set up in the corner of a farmer's field. Nobody in the audience realized the potbellied businessman on the makeshift stage was really a woman large with child. Favel, thirteen years older than his wife, stood around helplessly while the baby was being delivered. He was glad to hear it was a boy. Three violinists, a string trio: that was something to give the world!"
