Content DescriptionIn Hollywood she has spoken to an agent, Donald Friede, who wants to buy all movie rights to all D.H. Lawrence's books; she met another young agent, Allan Simpson, who she liked better than Friede; Allan Simpson wants to have the movie rights of all D.H. Lawrence's books; she has noticed what a 'special thing this movie industry is'.

Remarks that the 'statement of books' comes through Curtis Brown and that Alan Collins handled 'You Touched Me'; Marshall Best has told someone that she [Frieda] is a very domineering woman; she has not been successful in being domineering with Viking [Press]; asks whether Dial [Press] could do something with 'Phoenix'; adds that Monty [Weekley, Frieda's son] is much better but won't come to New Mexico as he has not seen his family during the war years.
