Description
The Mark Sandrich papers span the years 1924-1994 (bulk 1926-1945) and encompass 7.8 linear feet. The collection contains a variety of film-related production material, scripts, and clippings. There is some script material for television and some miscellaneous story material by Sandrich and others. There are Paramount and RKO studio memos, government-issued production material from World War II, and extensive correspondence with Irving Berlin. A scrapbook containing clippings, correspondence, and programs within its several hundred pages was dismantled. The resulting files contain primarily press clippings from West and East Coast industry trade papers and newspapers documenting Sandrich's professional career.
