Papers, 1899-1970.

Author: Fredric March
Edition/Format:   Archival material : Microfilm : English
Summary:
Papers of the late stage, screen, and television actor, including correspondence, scripts, and microfilmed clippings and scrapbooks.

Coverage is best for the later years of March's award-winning career, with some papers touching on the career of his actress-wife Florence Eldridge.

Scripts comprise the most important section of the collection, as they bear annotations relating to character development and portrayal. Some of the motion pictures which are so represented are "The Best Years of Our Lives" (RKO, 1946), "The Bridges at Toko-Ri" (Para., 1954), "Death of a Salesman" (Col., 1951), "Executive Suite" (MGM, 1954), "The Iceman Cometh" (American Film Theater, 1973), "Inherit the Wind" (UA, 1960), "The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit" (20th Century-Fox, 1956), "The Middle of the Night" (Col., 1959), "Seven Days in May" (Para., 1964), "A Star is Born" (UA, 1937), and "The Young Doctor" (UA, 1961). Similar files exist for his appearances on radio and television and in Broadway productions such as "Gideon" (1961) and "Long Day's Journey Into Night" (1956). Several of his dramatic readings and speeches are available in recorded form.

The correspondence is chiefly comprised of fan mail, but there are also letters from Leon Ames, John Chapman, Paddy Chayefsky, Lucius D. Clay, Clifton Fadiman, Fred Friendly, Julie Harris, Moss Hart, John Houseman, Charlton Heston, George S. Kaufman, Helen Keller, Walter F. Kerr, Stanley Kramer, Max Lerner, Howard Lindsay, Henry R. Luce, Joseph L. Mankiewicz, Henry Morgenthau, Jawaharlal Nehru, Sir Laurence Olivier, Max Otto, Claude Pepper, Adlai E. Stevenson, C.L. Sulzberger, Spencer Tracy, Stuart Udall, Mark Van Doren, Walter Wanger, and Margaret Webster.  Read more...
