A BRIEF CORRESPONDENCE between "KING KONG" CO-DIRECTOR & AVIATOR MERIAN C. COOPER & Lecture Agent JAMES POND., Cooper, Merian C. (1893-1973). American aviator, adventurer, screenwriter, producer & film director. He is best known as the co-director of the original 1933 movie "King Kong".
170 Cooper, Merian C. (1893-1973). American aviator, adventurer, screenwriter, producer & film director. He is best known as the co-director of the original 1933 movie "King Kong". A BRIEF CORRESPONDENCE between "KING KONG" CO-DIRECTOR & AVIATOR MERIAN C. COOPER & Lecture Agent JAMES POND.
New York, 1924 to 1927. [1924]. [1924]. Signed
- A brief correspondence between the aviator/film director Merian C. Cooper and James Pond regarding arrangements for a series of lectures by Cooper. The letters, dating from September 18, 1924 through May 5, 1927 include an Autograph Letter Signed by Cooper and a lengthy note penciled by Cooper at the bottom of a list of lecture venues, 3 Typed Letters Signed for Cooper by his secretary and carbon's of Pond's letters and replies. The correspondence here begins with a short Typed Letter Signed for him by Cooper's secretary, dated September, 1924. Cooper mentions enclosing a check for an ad in Pond's catalog and requests to see the blurb "before having it set up". On January 19th, 1925, Pond writes that he made arrangements & started booking venues following Cooper's assertion that he [Cooper] had arranged with Famous Players to use his films in conjunction with his lectures. Subsequently finding out that Famous Players has severely limited where Cooper could lecture and what material he could use, Pond was able to back out of all but one engagement in Buffalo and requests that Cooper make a special effort to follow through with this one. On March 28th, Pond again requests a response from Cooper. Cooper then replies with a lengthy note penciled in his hand at the bottom of a list of venues. Except for Buffalo, most of the venues are geographical or scientific societies which Famous Players will allow with major restrictions. Cooper writes: "There will be no public admissions - no publicity unless Famous wishes. If you have objections the only date arranged is with the Buffalo Club - a society club - which was arranged before signing contract". In a Typed Note Signed for him by his secretary, Cooper urgently requests that Pond let him know "if traveling expenses are included" before turning down the "Lancaster date". A brief note by Pond on April 20, 1925 mentions enclosing the contracts for Buffalo & Bridgeport. In a brief letter, penciled and signed in full by him, Cooper writes that he will be "available next week except Thursday the thirtieth" and that he will train a substitute for that date. This letter is accompanied by a carbon of a letter to a "Mr. Beulah" neatly typed by his secretary and dated April 20, 1925. On February 21st, 1927, Pond writes to invite Cooper to join him as his guest at the Circumnavigators Club dinner. Replying in a typed letter signed for him by his secretary, addressing Pond as "Dear Jim", Cooper writes: "I would like like Hell to go to the Circumnavigators dinner but I am right in the midst of trying to complete a book, finish the picture....". On May 5, 1927, Pond, eager to have Cooper become a member, again invites the aviator/director to join him for a subsequent Circumnavigators' Club dinner and suggests that Cooper is "eligible for membership in this Club. It is a most amusing one and I think you would like to know the bunch." Pond's retained carbon copies of his letters are chipped with several short tears to the edges. Merian Cooper's letters and notes are in otherwise very good condition. The American producer & film director Merian C. Cooper (1893-1973) was also an aviator. He served as a DH-4 bomber pilot during the First World War. Shot down by German troops, he served the remainder of that war in a POW camp. Following the war, he joined the Kosciuszko Squadron, a group of volunteer Americans which supported the Polish Army in the Polish-Soviet War. He was once again shot down and, this time, incarcerated in a Soviet POW camp. Escaping after 9 months, he was subsequently decorated with Poland's highest military award the Virtuti Militari. He enlisted and served as a Colonel in the Second World War and assisted in setting up the Assam-Burma-China Ferrying Command and led many missions. Before and after the Second World War, Cooper produced movies for RKO. His most memorable production was "King Kong", a film which he co-wrote, co-directed and in which he also played an acting role. He followed "King Kong" with "She" and pioneered ground breaking technology such as Technicolor and Cinerama. With his friend John Ford, who directed many legendary Westerns, he formed Argosy Productions in 1947. He and Ford went on to produce "Wagon Master", "Rio Grande", "The Quiet Man", and the "Searchers" among other films. First Edition.

Coppola writes to novelist and screenwriter Rudy Wurlitzer, praising his book "Hard Travel to Sacred Places", a record of his personal odyssey through Southeast Asia--an external and internal journey through grief and the painful realities of a decadent age: "Your book Hard Travel is absolutely extraordinary!! - so powerful, exotic, nightmarish, your inner life resonating so painfully, so exquisitely with your journey....I was greatly moved (having sought answers in Buddhism myself after our son's death.)" Eleanor Coppola [b. 1936] is a documentary filmmaker, artist and writer. She is married to Francis Ford Coppola and is best known for her 1991 documentary "Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse", as well as other documentaries chronicling the films of her husband and children.

His novels include the cult classic "Nog", "Flats", "Quake", "Slow Fade" and "The Drop End of Yonder".

172 Corbaley, Kate DIRECT DETAILED SYNOPSIS OF GATES OF BRASS. Frank Keenan Productions. Issued exclusively to Palmer Plan Members, Palmer Photoplay Corporation, by Special Permission of the Author
Palmer Photoplay Corporation, [1919]. [1919]. Good 
Palmer Photoplay Corporation, [1919].. [1919].. Good. - Small folio [14 inches high by 8-1/4 inches wide]. 16 mechanically reproduced typed pages, printed on one side only, plus a gray paper backing sheet bound with 2 staples along the top edge. The script is bowed from having been rolled up. The title page is soiled & somewhat darkened with its bottom edge chipped. the backing sheet is chipped with a stain & with a long tear to its bottom edge. Good.

The story of Jim Blake, an "unscruplous promoter", played by Frank Keenan. The opening paragraph of the synopsis reads: "The fast vanishing class of man called the promoter is the gilded gingerbread of American business life. It is a class whose glittering pretensions cannot make it the cake of capital although its cheap gilt denies its relation to the plain bread of honest labor." Blake's financial manipulations ruin the father of his beloved daughter's fiance. When she reluctantly accepts her father's guilt, they become estranged. A heartbroken Blake spends his first Christmas alone partying with his friends, and when his daughter and her husband arrive on a surprise visit, they find he has died from his excesses.

Kate Corbaley [1878-1938] became a screenwriter to support herself after her husband left her and moved to China. She wrote around twenty silent films between 1916 and 1926. In 1917 her screenplay "Real Folks" won a Photoplay Magazine contest and was produced by Triangle Films. She became the "principal" of the Palmer Photoplay Corporation, an agency which also ran a correspondence school for aspiring screenwriters. In 1927, she joined the script department of MGM, tasked with choosing potential film projects. Studio head Louis B. Mayer trusted her judgment and refused to have plot summaries read to him by anyone else.
