“The Writer and Hollywood: Norman Mailer.” Film Heritage 2 (fall), 23. Mailer answers two editors’ questions: “(1) Has Hollywood treated your work justly? (2) Can the serious writer’s work survive in Hollywood?” In 125 words apiece, Mailer answers “no” to each, adding to his second answer that complaining about the results after an author has sold work for money is “belly-aching” and “smacks too much of sniffing the armpit and wrestler’s moans.”
