BOX 1-8 Business Papers, 1924-1973
Howard Reinheimer’s business papers consist chiefly of his correspondence with playwrights, composers, and producers whom he represented, as well as rights holders and production studios. The series also contains employment and production contracts, rights agreements, partnership agreements, and a small number of scripts, financial statements, and clippings. These materials focus primarily on licensing for film, television, and radio adaptations of plays and musicals, in addition to foreign language and international production rights. George Kaufman and Moss Hart’s The Man Who Came to Dinner and You Can’t Take It with You are heavily documented, as is Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe’s My Fair Lady. The papers also offer insight into the relationship between Kaufman and Hart’s George Washington Slept Here and the corresponding British production Queen Elizabeth Slept Here that was based on it. Other files address the legal aspects of works that Marc Connelly, Cy Feuer, Bernard Hart, Joseph Hyman, Carol Irwin, Burton Lane, Frederick Lonsdale, Ernest Martin, Leueen MacGrath, Otto Preminger, Sigmund Romberg, and Sandy Wilson wrote or originally produced.
Arranged alphabetically, either by project title or last name, according to how Reinheimer labeled the files.
