Timelines for year 1935
Was the original choice for Errol Flynn's leading lady in the classic swashbuckler Captain Blood (1935) but the role ultimately went to young 18-year-old Olivia de Havilland, who impressed critics and audiences in the film A Midsummer Night's Dream (1935), which also co-starred Ms. Muir.
Margaret Mitchell claimed that she had never intended to publish "Gone With the Wind". In 1935, a friend of hers told Harold Latham, a visiting editor from the MacMillan publishing company, about the book. After some persuasion, Ms. Mitchell took the manuscript to his hotel. Mr. Latham stated that the stack of papers was almost as tall as Margaret was. Most of the pages had become mildewed and the book's chapters were out of order. After Margaret gave her manuscript to Mr. Latham she changed her mind about its possible publication and requested that he send the manuscript back to her. Mr. Lathams declined to do so. After reading the manuscript he realized that he had a very good book and published "Gone with the Wind" in 1936. It literally became an overnight success selling over a million copies in six months time and one million seven hundred thousand copies within a year of publication. It was in those days and is said to be still the second most printed book in the world, second only to the bible.

His papers are on deposit at the Billy Rose Theatre Collection at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. The Clurman papers contain notebooks and journals, director's annotated scripts, manuscript drafts and annotated typescripts of Clurman's books, and photograph scrapbooks documenting his career as a director, writer and critic. The materials span from 1935 through 1978 and give an interesting look at Clurman's work and thought process as a director. His notebooks contain his ideas on plot and character development, as well as casting notes and ideas for plays which he directed, while the scripts contain his director's annotations and compliment the notebooks for research and the study of Clurman's techniques as a director. Drafts and typescripts of his writings elucidate the evolution of his three books: "Ibsen," "On Directing" and "All People Are Famous." Finally, the photograph scrapbooks give a pictorial representative of specific plays, including "Awake and Sing," "The Iceman Cometh" and "Long Day's Journey Into Night."
