Dear Mr. Oursler:

Rupert Hughes told me that you wanted to have a copy of the SCREEN GUIDE FOR AMERICANS which I wrote for the Motion Picture Alliance for the Preservation of American Ideals. You will find a copy enclosed.

I was happy to hear of your interest. We would like to give this GUIDE the widest circulation possible and bring it to the attention of all those who stand for Americanism. We believe that the country needs it, because the public has been uneasily aware of Red propaganda in films for a long time, but nobody had defined or explained what Americans must object to and why.

With best regards,


Ayn Rand
