 Digital Record
Identifier: LC78-03


  • Digitized: 1947


Summary Note

One night, Will purchased tickets to a play, Anne of a Thousand Days, starring Rex Harrison and Lili Palmer, and took his boss from the Department of Commerce in Washington to see it. After the play, Will took his card—a formal calling card Margaret had had made for him—and wrote on the back of it, "Mother wrote Anna. May her son see its star?" He bribed the doorman with a dollar, who then called him in, and there was Rex Harrison in a pair of jockey shorts with his wife and attorney and one of the people in the play. They all talked about the book and the movie. (Length 3:50)
