Correspondence between Mr. Spyros P. Skouras, President of 20th Century Fox; Charles Schlaifer, Director of Advertising, Publicity, Exploitation, and Radio; and William C. Menninger, M.D. regarding the film "The Snake Pit." They discuss the possibility of securing actor Olivia de Havilland's attendance at the American Psychiatric Association's annual meeting. Skouras suggests it is unlikely since she is pregnant. Film openings and profits for The Snake Pit are also listed. The movie grossed $13,276 in the first three days after it opened in three Kansas City theaters, which made it more popular than "Gentleman's Agreement" and "Razor's Edge."

Creator: Menninger, William Claire, 1899-1966
Date: November 22, 1948-February 15, 1949
