Scope and Content

With Jerry Wald (1911-1962), American screenwriter and producer of Warner Brothers Pictures, California. Topics covered include: the temporary script of a film called John Paul Jones he is sending for RD's consideration; the screenplay of Johnny Belinda which is also being sent to RD, which Wald believes bears similarities with Mr Chips; and Jean Wyman, who would like to appear in the film. RD turns both parts down, the former because he feels it contains too much anti-British feeling, and the latter because he feels the male character is overshadowed by that of the girl.
