In these diary entries written between January and December 1948, Hollywood screenwriter Charles Brackett lists his activities: learning that he and Billy Wilder could not possibly get Barry Fitzgerald for Miss Tatlock's Millions; lunching with Wilder and Sam Goldwyn, who suggested putting the names of Brackett and Wilder on the Danny Kaye picture; attending the Academy Awards with Wilder; seeing the film Abigail, Dear Heart; going to Pomona for a preview of Miss Tatlock's Millions; going over the retake scene for Miss Tatlock's Millions with Richard Breen and making some small changes; and finishing He Died of Murder in order to focus on The Loved One; agreed with Wilder on a tentative title, A Can of Beans, for their new collaboration.
