In these diary entries written between January and December 1947, Hollywood screenwriter Charles Brackett lists his activities: discussing Sorry, Wrong Number with Billy Wilder; talking to Henry Ginsberg and selling him and Frank Butler and D. A. Doran Wilder's idea for a new picture project; having tea with Sam Goldwyn and his wife Frances at their house; calling Richard Haydn about the Mary Poppins project; driving with Haydn and Doane Harrison for the preview of The Emperor Waltz; attending a party for Evelyn Waugh at director George Cukor's house; finishing It Must Be Love, the script Wilder got from Ted Leshin; starting to work with Wilder on The Hon. Phoebe Frost [A Foreign Affair]; and receiving a letter from Haydn, who was delighted at the prospect of directing The Tatlock Millions.
