Delbert Mann types a letter about his methodology to directing.
Typed Letter Signed: "Delbert Mann", 1p, 8½x11. Los Angeles, 1992 May 1. To Charles Barch, St. Marys, Georgia. In part: "As a director...I must take what the actor has to offer, from whatever base he has operated to give me the emotion, and work with that. It is not my function to impose on the actor any of my preconceived notions as to how best to get to an accurate and effective portrayal of the emotion needed. I am really not interested in how he achieved this. I am only interested in what results from his working method and how truly it conveys the emotion I feel is needed...." Type at lower edge has gone off the page; Mann has handwritten "nn" over those letters of his typed signature. Delbert Mann (1920-2007) began directing during television's "golden age" in the 1950s. He won the 1955 Academy Award for Best Director for Marty, which he had directed on television's Goodyear Playhouse. Lightly creased. Folds, not at signature. Address label affixed at upper margin. Fine condition.
