Scope and Content

With William Wyler (1902-1981), German-born American film director of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in California. RD belatedly thanks Wyler for thinking of him in 1944, and reference is made to a film called The Heiress in which Wyler is keen for RD to play Dr Sloper, a part RD turns down.

/2 is a letter from Christopher Mann Ltd, enclosing a telegram from Wyler.
