Ms letter from Tony Richardson to Graves

Scope and Content

In response to Graves's letter to the 'Evening Standard' Richardson explains why he has not kept him well informed about progress with his proposed film adaptation of 'I, Claudius' and gives a history of the adaptation to date. Edward Bond, Christopher Isherwood, Richardson and others all made attempts to produce a script; now John Mortimer has written an early draft, but there is unlikely to be any funding for a film.
