Many thanks to Matthew for sending the memo, and for his words.
R K O STUDIOS, IN
To Messrs: KAHANE, BERMAN, O'HERON, NOLAN, WHITE, ABBOTT, WILKINSON
From: MAX STEINER
Date: September 29, 1934
Subject: OFFICE HOURS
TO ALL LOVERS OF NIGHT SHIFTS!
Effective Monday morning, October First, I can be found at the Studio during the hours: 9:00am to 12:30pm; and from 1:30pm to 6:00pm, every day except Sundays and Holidays. However, I WILL NOT be found, any longer, during the hours from 6:00pm to 9:30am next morning, as in the past.
Should this not be satisfactory to anyone, I shall be only too happy to cancel my contract.
Furthermore, I just received an offer from the President of the May Company, Eighth at Broadway, Los Angeles, California, who wants to obtain my services, on a long term contract, as a "BED-TRYER" and that looks awfully good to me.
