Archive of Scripts and Letters from Larry Gelbart to Robert Parrish

N.p. N.p., 1979-1997. Archive of 22 pieces of correspondence between writer Larry Gelbart and director Robert Parrish, consisting of nine typescripts, six of which are INSCRIBED, plus three autographed letters signed, one typed letter signed, and six autographed notes from Gelbart to Parrish, as well as three outgoing carbons of letters written from Parrish to Gelbart and a seven-page typescript of Parrish’s essay “Beverly Hills Breakfast Briefing.”

Gelbart, known primarily for having written "Tootsie" (1982) and for creating the television show "MASH," maintained a close friendship with “Casino Royale” director Robert Parrish and his wife Kathleen, as seen here via nearly 20 years of kind correspondence that touches upon the two men’s writings, careers, and family lives. An uncommonly charming and frequently hilarious documentation of a film industry relationship.

Typescript, photocopy, and manuscript. Variously bound: loose leaves, corner-stitched, three typescripts have two gold brads, and one is velo bound. Very Good plus to Near Fine.

Complete collation information available upon request.
