HOLLYWOOD, May 12 — The warm admiration David Wark Griffith has for Preston Sturges and his delight in “The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek” will shortly result in a business association. D.W. wrote a motion picture version of Louis Bromfield’s “Up Ferguson Way,” which appeared in Cosmopolitan magazine, and through Lillian Gish’s insistence gave it to Preston to read. While it’s beautiful and poetic, Lillian and Sturges felt Griffith’s first picture should be strongly commercial. So Bromfield has been asked for added story suggestions.

    OK, I admit, I confuse easily (especially after the beginning of the cocktail hour) but how could this be D.W. Griffith’s first picture in 1944?
