Full page t.l.s., March 8, 1957, addressed to James Neilson, [who directed Fox's novel Night Passage]; c/o Screen Gems, Inc., Columbia Pictures. Fox relates that he has noticed Neilson has been doing some work at Screen Gems and is following up on the copy of Badlands and Beyond that he sent to Neilson. " I thought that BADLANDS BEYOND, might interest you if you go back into movie work, and at any rate I hope you find time to read it as I'm quite proud of it . . . We certainly enjoyed our junket to Durango last fall and will be looking forward to seeing Night Passage." Fox further discussed the negotiations regarding a title change for Night Passage, subject to a conference call with actor Jimmy Stewart. Fox anticipated the changes, and suggested "Brave Passage", but in the end the original became the title of record. Also mentions talking to Bordan Chase, and Clark Ramsey to drop a couple of important Hollywood names in the bargain. Nice association with obvious overtones of promotion, and connections in the soup of movie making
Title: The Badlands Beyond. (with t.l.s by the author on his letterhead).
