I stayed for a few months in Hollywood. Money is slowly melting away. With no means to return to Europe, I began to look for a job. I even met with Chaplin to sell him some "gags".Refusing to sign a petition in defense of the Republic - while John Wayne, for instance, chaired the committee in support of the Franco - it just blew me. In this connection such a coincidence will discuss. Suggest a bed in one of the "gags" gun shot so sluggish that the bullet fell to the ground, barely taking off from the barrel.The same "gag" to be found in chaplinovskom "dictator" when a large projectile flies out of a huge cannon. Match purely accidental, because Chaplin could not have known about my fiction. Find a job was impossible. I met Rene Clair, at the time one of the most famous directors in the world.He refused all offers - none suited him. But admitted that over the next three months will still have to remove the picture, or his refusal will be considered "European bluff".

Over time, New York had a reputation for the glory - not a legend it? - Hospitable and noble city, where it's easy to find a job. I met here Catalan mechanics, some of Gali. Arriving in 1920 with drugomskripachom, they immediately got a job.Fiddler took Philharmonic Orchestra, and the mechanics of Gali - dancer in a big hotel. Who were the other times. Ghali introduced me to another Catalans racketeer familiar with one polugangsterom, who headed the union of cooks. They gave me a letter and told to come to the hotel. With this patronage, I could, at best, to get a place in the kitchen.In the end I did not go there. I met a woman who owes a lot to. This Englishwoman Iris Barry, the wife of Vice President Dick Museum of Modern Art Abbott. last film Obsession
. Iris had sent me a telegram, promising to provide a flat. I hurried to her. Here's how the plan she shared with me.Nelson Rockefeller decided to create a committee in charge of propaganda in Latin America, called the Coordinating Committee for Inter-American Affairs.
