LEWIS, Richard Warren
[Manuscript]: "[The Battle of] Peyton Place" [published in] TV Guide and "Mia Farrow" [published in] The Saturday Evening Post
1965. Two typed manuscripts about Mia Farrow and her breakout TV series, Peyton Place, along with several internal memos, and a Typed Letter Signed from the author. The first manuscript is titled "Peyton Place" but was published by the January 16, 1965 issue TV Guide as "The Battle of Peyton Place." It consists of 19 single typed sheets typed rectos only with a few scattered holograph corrections and a penciled notation, presumably by an editor, stating "Raw Copy Unedited." The second manuscript, titled "Mia Farrow," consists of twelve typed sheets typed rectos only with holograph corrections and a penciled note, stating "Raw unedited copy, 8/26/65," accompanied by two copies of the manuscript stapled at the corners. All fine. Our research could not determine if the second manuscript was ever published in its entirety but sections of it were certainly used in the TV Guide article. Included is a Typed Letter Signed from the author to a Saturday Evening Post editor noting revisions made to the Farrow story, and most interesting, five pages of internal Saturday Evening Post memos commenting on the story, all fine. The memos provide a window into story development and the opinions of the editors on reader interest, the author, Farrow's "vapid personality," and her future husband, Frank Sinatra, who is referred to as "the old gash master." .
