— Dear Marty

A letter to Martin Scorsese from his idol Michael Powell, describing his feelings towards the Goodfellas script.

A sad footnote is that having been so effusive about the screenplay, Powell died just months before the film’s theatrical release, so never got to see the finished article.

 

I like the letterhead almost as much as the content of the letter. It’s very confident.
