This is an UNPRODUCED SCREENPLAY by EVA BARTOK titled LETTER TO MY DAUGHTER or IMRE. The screenplay seems to be Semi Autobiographical. It tells the story of a Mother and Her Young Daughter in Nazi Germany. Eva Bartok had a Catholic mother and a Jewish Father, and so does the mother in this screenplay. The inner angst this caused Bartok (and the mother and child in this screenplay) during the Nazi years is on full display.Photocopied on plain white paper copy machine copies were, and still are, common among draft, production and working screenplays; drafts could be quickly made and sent to the film's writers, agents, producers, directors, etc. , 8.5x11 inches, 136 pages plus a title page, pages printed on one side only. GOOD condition, the title page has some words covered with White Out and white label tape, the title is written in black marker on the front page edges; there are a few relevant margin notes (photocopied as is this entire draft); the last few pages have light staining at the left margin; there are the usual photocopying dust marks and some corner creases, otherwise the script is bright and clear. An Unusual and Rare Screenplay by the Actress EVA BARTOK, perhaps revealing some of what it was like for her as a Catholic / Jewish child married to a Nazi Officer in Nazi Germany.
