    Description

    Dylan Thomas Autograph Letter Signed, one page, 5.25" x 5.25", The Boathouse, Laugharne, Camarthenshire, Wales, n.d., ca. late 1951, to Michael Powell, n.p. The letter reads, "Roger Burford gave your address to my agent, David Higham, and said that you wanted to hear from me about the possibility of my working on a film story. I wasn't told any details, but I wanted, of course, like enormously to work on a story for you. Could we meet anywhere? Or would you drop me a line? I'll be at this address." Thomas also inscribed "Laugharne 69" - his new phone number - above the letter's body. Very fine condition with a bold, perfectly legible inscription. Michael Powell, the recipient of this letter, was an English-born director who, in late 1951, solicited the collaboration of Igor Stravinsky and Dylan Thomas for a new film. Thomas and Powell met in January, 1952, however the project never received funding and was dropped.
