About this Item

Original typed letter signed from screenwriter DeWitt Bodeen to Victor Scherle and William Levy, authors of ÔThe Films of Frank CapraÕ and ÔAffectionately, T. S. Eliot: The Story of a Friendship: 1947-1965.Õ on printed Motion Picture Country House and Lodge stationery. The letter reads in full: ÒDear Messrs. Levy and Scherle: Our mutual friend, Morgan Farley, gave me your address, so IÕm writing to tell you that IÕm a resident at the Country House, where we have another mutual friend in Mary Astor. She, as a matter of fact, lent me her copy of your new book on Capra, which I read with a great deal of interest. ItÕs a handsome book honoring a great talent. WeÕre not too far away, and sometime if youÕre coming over this way, give me a call, and perhaps we can then meet. IÕm in Bungalow #21, and look out on the John Ford Chapel, which makes me sometimes think IÕm no the back lot at 20th. I go into town frequently to do research at the Academy library and to see the movies, so donÕt give up if IÕm away when you call. Best wishes, and looking forward to meeting you, DeWitt Bodeen.Ó Fine condition. DeWitt Bodeen (1908 - 1988) was a screenwriter and playwright and wrote several books and articles about film and screen personalities. He is best known for his work on the classic Val Lewton films ÔCat People,Õ ÔThe Curse of the Cat People,Õ and ÔThe Seventh Victim.Õ. Bookseller Inventory # 18936E
