The journalist writes about a upcoming actor on Daily Mirror letterhead, signs name in pencil
Typed letter signed: "Mark" in pencil. 1 page, 8½x9¼. New York, Friday afternoon, no date. On stationery of the newspaper, Daily Mirror, 235 East 45th Street, New York. To Lew. In full: "You once sent me a wire in relation to Louis B------. You asked to see him without the ginger ale. Here he is. I put him with Paramount last September. His salary with Loew had been $12 a week and Paramount raised the ante to $15. The success must have gone to his head, however, because he was last week discovered interviewing actors and actresses - and running a casting office of his own on the side. He was very promptly fired. But his explanation to me seems perfectly logical. His work in the mail room was pretty dull and he thought it would be much nicer to become an executive. So, while possible stars of the future were waiting to see the casting director, Louis interviewed them and shook his head rather dubiously. Thus did the days pass more quickly. Seriously, Lewis, the boy is bright, alert and full of Yiddish sense. He'll more than pay you back in laughs. If you can use him in your office, hire him. I can assure you that you won't go wrong. Love." Journalist MARK HELLINGER (1903-1947) was a prominent journalist and columnist who also wrote short stories and wrote and produced several Broadway revues and plays.
