|Description:||21 lf. (52 boxes)|
The bulk of the papers concern Brisson's career as a theatrical and film producer after 1965, although small files exist for some of his earlier productions. The papers include information on Brisson's research and subsequent choice of properties, and fund-raising. Production files account for more than half of the collection. This material reflects Brisson's involvement in the financial and creative aspects of production, and includes correspondence with actors, playwrights, and investors. Project files also form a significant part of the collection, and contain scripts, correspondence, reports from various readers, and Brisson's own notes. Personal papers include information relating to Brisson's immigration and naturalization in the 1930s and his military service during World War II. Rosalind Russell's papers include some correspondence, miscellaneous items, and a typescript of her autobiography, LIFE IS A BANQUET, which was published posthumously.
