The Link, Vol. 10 free pdf Excerpt from The Link, Vol. 10: January 1952 Mr. Sid Meyerhauser, known to readers of the motion picture magazines as "The Little Napoleon of the Cinema," toyed playfully with the riding crop that always lay upon his desk and smiled benignly at the timid, hesitant author who sat opposite. "We're expecting great things of you, Mr. Shakespeare," said Meyerhauser. "It's going to take you time to learn, but you look like a smart young fellow. You know you need only one successful picture out here and you're set for life. I'm going to team you up with Buddy Raskin, one of the best constructionists in the game. You're a lucky guy, Shakespeare. It isn't often a newcomer gets a chance to work with a real topnotch writer like Buddy." Mr. Meyerhauser nicked the top of his desk with his riding crop. "Now this play of yours, Hearts Ablaze - " "Hearts Ablaze?" said Shakespeare. "I've changed the name," Mr. Meyerhauser explained. "'Hamlet' has no box office appeal. Now over in Stratfield where you come from - " "Stratford," said Shakespeare. Mr. Meyerhauser frowned at the interruption. "All right, Stratford. Over in Stratford they'd get the point in a second, but you're in America now. Of course, you and I understand what the word 'Hamlet' means, but the question is, Would the fellow out in Cedar Bluffs understand it?" "But," Shakespeare protested timidly, "Hamlet is the name - " "Listen, Bill." Mr. Meyerhauser waved his riding crop to emphasize his remarks. "We paid you ten grand for that play of yours, and that's a lot of money in any man's country. You're just a beginner out here. Now if you could write like Moss Hart or Bob Sherwood it would be different." The producer rose to signify that the interview was at an end. He patted the crestfallen author reassuringly on the shoulder. "Don't worry, Bill- you'll make good. And I've got great news for you. I think I'm going to get Bing Crosby to play the lead." Clipping from Variety Shake Scripts Hearts Bill Shakespeare checked in on the R.U.R. lot yesterday. He was assigned to assist Buddy Raskin on the Sid Meyerhauser production of Hearts Ablaze. Gummo Marx Agency set. Letter from William Shakespeare to Mrs. William Shakespeare, Stratford-on-Avon, England My dear Ann, Well, here I am in Hollywood, California, at last, and I'll bet, Ann, that you never thought, when we used to sit in the cinema looking at all those glamorous figures on the screen, that one day I'd be out here in Hollywood, California, practically rubbing elbows, as you might say, with all those glamorous figures.
