Lot 934: Uncommon TLS, one page, 8.25 x 11.75, personal letterhead, August 9, 1972. Letter to Rex McGee, in part: "With respect to Fear and Desire, I'm afraid I don't know where any prints can be found. With respect to attending the USC Cinema Retrospective, much as I would like to do it, I am afraid that my schedule would not permit me to. I suggest that you write to Douglas Netter at MGM in Culver City, and say to him that we have corresponded, and that I have asked you to get in touch with him in order to borrow prints of '2001' and 'Lolita.' I don't guarantee results, but I think that if anyone will do this for you, he will." In fine condition, with light overall toning and trivial dings to bottom edge. A great letter mentioning two of his most acclaimed films.
