Papers of Reginald Rose, 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.
