A Wordsmith Introduces Himself


A letter sent by 24 year-old future screenwriter Robert Pirosh (1910 – 1989) to the directors and producers of Hollywood in 1934.

It landed him three interviews and a job as junior writer with MGM which led on to a gig writing for the Marx Brothers and, later, an Oscar for his script for Battleground in 1949.
