2/3/44 2nd revised temporary script, screenplay by Alvah Bessie. Mimeo-with pencil shading along margins denoting `Daves' material. ca. 160 pages Introductory page: note by Delmer Daves in ink holograph, This script was rejected by Warner and Wald-I was asked to do a rewrite and given complete freedom to reject or retain material from this-in the shooting script I wrote I retained 37% of this script in feeling or fact (marked). I had objected to the New York `slum clearance' confusions of the 1st draft-but he changed only to Pasadena at my suggestion as director assigned and too few of my other suggestions-so final screenplay=63% Daves script/37% Bessie- Fronttcover: ink holograph top of page [by Delmer Daves] Alvah Bessie Draft #2 (Pasadena).

Obviously impossible, -picture was postponed pending change of ruling. Made possible because of the 40% profits to the Canteen (the fund existed for some years invested and growing under Jules Steins' management)-Lasky left WB, so I made the 1944 version with Sottlieb producer-
