Robert Pirosh Letter

This is a slight deviation from our normal content, but very deserving of a post. The backstory is outstanding. Robert Pirosh was a successful New York copywriter in the 1930s, but ached to become a Hollywood screenwriter. He composed this cover letter and sent it to producers and studio executives. It worked. He was hired as a junior writer at MGM and fifteen years later, won his first Oscar for best original screenplay.
