Papers of a noted writer for television, motion pictures, and the stage. Television files containing variant drafts of scripts, correspondence, clippings, and production information comprise the bulk of the collection. Of these, there are extensive files on "Alcoa-Goodyear Theatre" (NBC), "Danger" (CBS), "Playhouse 90" (CBS), and "Studio One" (CBS). For "The Defenders" (CBS), which Rose created and wrote, there are scripts and a film for every episode of the program's five-year history. The remainder of the collection consists of motion picture scripts, including "Twelve Angry Men" (UA, 1957), which Rose adapted from a "Studio One" teleplay and then co-produced; unproduced ideas; plays; and sound recordings of eight of his early television plays.
The processed portion is summarized above and is described in the register. Additional accessions are described below.
