BEATON-39372-1.jpg BEATON IS IN LOS ANGELES WORKING ON 'MY FAIR LADY'
BEATON (Sir Cecil, 1904-1980, Photographer & Designer)

Fine Autograph Letter Signed to "Dearest Ava", Lady Waverley, signed "Cecil" (1896-1974, wife of Sir John Anderson, Viscount Waverley) writing from Los Angeles, "It's really unbelievable - little did I realise when I signed the dotted line that they wouldn't be making any of the picture in London. But even Ascot & Covent Garden are to be recreated in the back lot - & here I must remain - nose to suburban arcadian - ground - until the day they decide I'm no longer indispensable. Of course it's a job I have to do - & it will help pay my taxes - but never again! I'm too old to waste such valuable time. However I'm disciplining myself thoroughly - not to look at the ugliness surrounding me, & to read the classics & to see the only few civilised people there are hiding in these hills. My new bungalow looks out on a Walt Disneyesque patio - with Italian fountain, marguerites and jasmine - it's really rather pretty & I'm going to swim in the pool each morning before driving myself on the terrifying speedways to the Office. I've never before had a desk to sit behind and a secretary to keep people at bay - & it's all a series of Firsts for me. Perfectly good for the character if hard on the soul ... the weekends come as a blessing & are more important than they have been since boarding school. Tell me your news! I expect you are full of activity & verve. I expect you will be waltzing at Windsor Castle in honour of Princes Alexandra & in touch with the nation's protectors. It would be kind if you would write to your friend in exile, & tell me for example what you thought of Freddie's latest or Nicholas Lawford's previous ...", 2 sides 4to., Hotel Bel Air headed paper, Los Angeles, 1st April
