Зборови за мерак


Неодамна на одличниот блог Letters of Note наидов на едно писмо кое копирајтерот Роберт Пирош, тукушто пристигнат во САД, во потрага по работа го испратил на сите режисери, продуценти и директори на студија кои ги знаел. Писмото е триумф на елоквентноста и иницијативноста, а изобилува и со одлични игри со зборови, па тука го пренесуваме интегрално. Истото, инаку, ја исполнило својата цел и му обезбедило на својот создавач 3 одделни интервјуа за работа. Роберт Пирош почнал да работи во студиото MGM, за подоцна да добие и Оскар за најдобро сценарио во 1949 година, за филмот Battleground.

Dear Sir:

I like words. I like fat buttery words, such as ooze, turpitude, glutinous, toady. I like solemn, angular, creaky words, such as straitlaced, cantankerous, pecunious, valedictory. I like spurious, black-is-white words, such as mortician, liquidate, tonsorial, demi-monde. I like suave “V” words, such as Svengali, svelte, bravura, verve. I like crunchy, brittle, crackly words, such as splinter, grapple, jostle, crusty. I like sullen, crabbed, scowling words, such as skulk, glower, scabby, churl. I like Oh-Heavens, my-gracious, land’s-sake words, such as tricksy, tucker, genteel, horrid. I like elegant, flowery words, such as estivate, peregrinate, elysium, halcyon. I like wormy, squirmy, mealy words, such as crawl, blubber, squeal, drip. I like sniggly, chuckling words, such as cowlick, gurgle, bubble and burp.

I like the word screenwriter better than copywriter, so I decided to quit my job in a New York advertising agency and try my luck in Hollywood, but before taking the plunge I went to Europe for a year of study, contemplation and horsing around. 

I have just returned and I still like words. 

May I have a few with you?
