Please know how grateful I am for your generously gracious remarks about Henry V [TIME, April 8] both for myself and for those associated with me in making this film. I personally feel your kind words mean not only much to Henry V but to every producer-director both here and in Hollywood who dreams of attempting finer things in films. It has inspired and encouraged me to want to do something new again and I am bold to hope that men like Kanin, Wyler, Capra, Welles and many others in Hollywood will not scorn to share this feeling with me. . . .
