So I finished the film Carmen. It's a very nice film, and I'm sure some of you may be rather excited to see it because of that small fight that I got into with one of the girls.

However, I'm getting rather tired of all the Vamp roles that they are giving me. I told them during the making of my last film that I'm getting far too many Vamp roles. It's really rather boring. I want to be known as someone who is multi-talented. Being a Vamp just does not suit my personality.

Understandably. I almost got labeled as another Hollywood Monster Man, but I got myself out of that one.

Please, tell me how you got yourself out of that one. I need the advice.

I just held out for my own script until RKO caved in and gave me what I wanted. I mean, without them, I was getting decent money and fame so they knew I could hold out for a while and they really wanted me.

I can only imagine how horrible it is for an actress to be type-cast, especially someone who is so versitile as you.

It's truly disheartening. Do they think that I am not talented enough to play a different role just because I'm old?

I think that we can relate on this, you are type cast as "The Vamp," and I am type cast as "The child." The sad fact of it is that the audience rarely wants to see your roles change.
Much Love,
Mary

I think you should switch roles, that would make everything very amusing.

Mary the Vamp.

That would be a welcome change.

Do as much of what they want as you can stand (for the money), then take your art and run independently.
That's what I would do, anyway.

I concur. I'll deal with Fox for a little bit longer, but then, I'm going to badger them about a non-vamp role until they give me one.
