Abstract:

Correspondence, works, subject files, legal and financial materials, photographs, scrapbooks, sound recordings, film, video, artifacts, and miscellaneous ephemera documenting the life and literary output of Ben Hecht, his wife Rose, and his actress daughter Jenny.

Includes novels, articles, essays, speeches, poems, scripts, and other writings of Hecht, Rose, and friends and collaborators. Extensive correspondence includes letters from Margaret Anderson, Sherwood Anderson, Maxwell Bodenheim, Gene Fowler, Moss Hart, George Jessel, Herman Kogan, Hillel Kook, Adolph Kroch, Lotte Lenya, Charles MacArthur, H.L. Mencken, and Carl Sandburg, as well as many letters between Hecht and his wife and children, and other relatives. Also photographs of Hecht and his family, his homes, friends, and the sets of plays and movies he worked on; several audio recordings, including one of the short-lived Ben Hecht Show; and numerous artifacts, including Hecht's 1929 Oscar for "Underworld." There is considerable material documenting Hecht's post-World War I term as a Chicago Daily News war correspondent in Germany, his support for an Israeli state and Irgun, and about Maxwell Bodenheim, Mickey Cohen, Charles MacArthur, Herman Mankiewicz, Carl Sandburg, Stanislaus Szukalski, and Kurt Weill.
