Abstract:

Papers of Moss Hart (1904-1961) and Kitty Carlisle (1910-2007), a noted playwright-director and his wife, an actress and television personality. Their combined correspondence, 1935-1960, includes some business mail, fan letters, and personal correspondence from George Abbott, Brooks Atkinson, Bernard Baruch, Bruce Barton, Cecil Beaton, S.N. Behrman, Irving Berlin, Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Bohrod, Truman Capote, Bennett Cerf, Edward Choate, Jerome Chodorov, Claudette Colbert, Hume Cronyn, Russel Crouse, George Cukor, Edna Ferber, Judy Garland, George Gershwin, Sir John Gielgud, Mark Goodson, Oscar Hammerstein II, Rex Harrison, Leland Hayward, Lillian Hellman, George S. Kaufman, Elia Kazan, Jerome Kern, Jean Kerr, Arthur Kober, Alan J. Lerner, Sinclair Lewis, Howard Lindsay, Joshua Logan, Henry R. Luce, Sidney Lumet, Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne, Fredric March, Michael Myerberg, Sir Laurence Olivier, John Osborne, Cole Porter, Anthony Quayle, Jerome Robbins, Morris Rubin, Harry Ruby, Robert E. Sherwood, Herman Shumlin, Jean Sibelius, Phil Silvers, Adlai E. Stevenson, Theodore H. White, Emlyn Williams, and other prominent individuals.

Manuscript and published copies of Hart's major works, some of which were written in collaboration with George S. Kaufman and Irving Berlin, include the plays "The American Way" (1939), "Christopher Blake" (1946), "The Climate of Eden" (1952), "George Washington Slept Here" (1940), "Jubilee" (1935), "Lady in the Dark" (1941), "Light Up the Sky" (1948), "The Man Who Came to Dinner" (1939), "Merrily We Roll Along" (1934), "Once in a Lifetime" (1930), "You Can't Take It With You" (1936), and "Winged Victory" (1943); the motion pictures "The Eddie Duchin Story" (Col., 1954), "Gentleman's Agreement" (20th Century-Fox, 1947), and "A Star is Born" (Warner Brothers, 1954); and his autobiography "Act One" (1959).

There is also a script for "My Fair Lady" (1956), which Hart directed on Broadway. For several of the above titles there are also notes, business records, clippings, and photographs. Of more personal interest are two diaries, the first kept by Hart during a world trip in 1935 while he wrote "Jubilee," and the second a journal of his theatrical activities and personal life during 1953 and 1954.

Related to Kitty Carlisle's stage and screen career are clipping scrapbooks, 1932-1946 (on microfilm), photographs, and a draft version of her autobiography "Kitty" (1988).

On film are the Harts' appearances at the 1961 Academy Award ceremonies and on "Person to Person" (CBS) in 1959. The tape recordings concern a 1960 discussion of Broadway musicals between Hart and Brooks Atkinson.
