1968. Typed letter signed from novelist-screenwriter Erich Segal to Daniel Selznick, dated October 15, 1968, on two-color printed Yale University letterhead. At this point Segal had written the screenplay to the Beatles' animated feature, "Yellow Submarine," but the letter precedes by nearly two years Segal's phenomenal success as the author of the best selling "Love Story," as well as the screenwriter for the novel's adaptation to the screen.
In the letter, Segal responds enthusiastically to an invitation from Selznick, but jokes that he may out-chic Selznick with his new Italian suit.
Daniel Selznick, the son of David O. Selznick, is best known as a producer for films such as Peter Bogdanovich's "Targets" (1968) and various documentaries about Hollywood. His association with his father allowed him many opportunities to meet and correspond with numerous actors, actresses, and directors of note.
