In these diary entries written between January and October 1940, Hollywood screenwriter Charles Brackett lists his activities: listening to Jacques Théry go over and over various storylines; meeting William LeBaron, who said he wanted to keep Brackett and Billy Wilder but could not snatch writers away from Arthur Hornblow; meeting Hornblow, whom Wilder had apparently promised to urge Brackett to do Polonaise rather than Ghost Time; spending the day at the studio discussing Charles Boyer possibilities; having lunch with Sam Goldwyn, who wanted Brackett and Wilder to do a picture for him; and dining at the Goldwyns with Elza and Edwin Schallert, parents of actor William Schallert.

Keywords:   Jacques Théry, William LeBaron, Billy Wilder, Arthur Hornblow, Sam Goldwyn, Edwin Schallert, Polonaise
