Scope and Content

With Anthony Z. Landi, American film executive. Topics covered include: Goldsmith, a Hollywood producer who might have an interesting suggestion for RD in 1949; Carl Forman, an American screenplay author, who is visiting England in May 1952; the formation of the Authors and Players Company in Hollywood in November 1952; an invitation to RD to participate in some planned half hour motion pictures intended for release in trios, subsequently to be shown on television; and RD criticism of Landi's "dreary sign-on-the-dotted-line-by-return-of-post-or-else manner" (/9).
