a piece of MYRA HUDSON

When I awoke, I fell asleep,

I think of you.

You're the air I breathe,

You're the sky that dominates me,

soil that sustains me.

Music, beauty, light

the sun makes me think of you.

You are all women:

sister that have not had,

mother and I almost forgot,

the woman I've always dreamed of.

All the ties that bind

man and woman,

I want to weave with you.

Anything with you!

End of Act II. Curtain.

The tempo is perfect, Lester.

Keep it.

10 min break.

Listen rather:
"The rumor

Myra Hydson, the heiress

"Which has a greater need for a successful

that Rockefeller million,

"Wrote its best play

Destination with 7th Heaven.


started this week. "

This heritage, which shot!

Give it to me.

Press Fichera you peace.

It discusses changes

of Act II?

Let's start with this actor.

Discovery, right?

What stamp moving!

His voice,

but it was not physical.

This is an excellent actor.

I know Bill, but it is not

sufficient for this role.

He must convince us that

he sings "Blind Mice" Laura,

she finds it

most poetic world.

It takes a seducer

that electrifies

all spectators,

as soon as it comes into play.

I have not seen such a good actor

since John Barrymore.

I observed

all angles.

Sorry, but there is no

for the role.

It is you who judge

the physics of this comedian?

I run it for,

it would be perfect.

Everyone's opinion.

I did not find it

a physical leading man.

My dear, to mount it,

I invested a pittance: $ 85,000.

I know for you it is not.

But it's my money.

Whatever you relate

my pieces.

Well ...

What good talk more?

Remains to announce it to Blaine.

Tell him the truth. Load me.

As a writer, I have the privilege


Including, Bill?

For you to turn.

Surprise yourself that I do not have a friend

across Broadway!

That's all for today.

Mr. Blaine, can I see you

a moment?


Nothing in the mail

that deserves an answer urgently?

A telegram from Steve Kearney.

C. Hoyt request an interview.

The Authors Guild

committee seat on Saturday night.

Friday, 14 am to Hoyt.

Tell the Guild

I will do my best.

For Steve, the first being 21,

I will go to San Francisco on Monday.

Miss Hudson!

In San Francisco

where you were born,

there is a museum,

a portrait of Casanova.

You've probably never seen.

Here, Miss Hudson

what it was like Casanova

donkey's ears, eyes grim,

broken nose

and a large wart on the chin.

Right there!

Once back there,

go and see this picture.

Mr. Blaine ...

Triomphe, "Destination, 7th Heaven"

Myra Hudson

Myra Hudson is a true tobacco

- The train to San Francisco?

- That's it.

I will wait for you there.

Thank you.

I'm exhausted, I do not want to see

person before arriving in San Fransico.

I'll sit in the train.

I will introduce Ann to the airport.

I prefer the train.

Doing a very good trip.

And between here and Chicago,

write me another room!

It will be completed soon Cleveland!

In the car!

Mr. Blaine?

Mr. Blaine?

Good evening, Miss Hudson.

What a coincidence

you ride to Buffalo.

No, I left New York.

Besides, I've seen you ride.


I've seen everything

candy, books, flowers.

See ...

I thought

you come to tell me goodbye.

But you have already done

last month.

I tried to reach you

many times last month.

No kidding?

Excuse me.


Do you want a drink?


I ring?
