Correspondence with Communists and political thinkers of the era at home and abroad

CP/MONT/6. A substantial quantity of this correspondence took place during the second world war and for this reason it includes references to rationing, the invasion of Russia, and the British Communist Party's policy with regard to the war. Montagu's writings also come to the fore in an uncorrected script and in reviews of his work, including that by Harry Pollitt. Montagu corresponded with George Bernard Shaw on the subject of film censorship and with scholars on the subject of George Bernard Shaw. Montagu enjoyed a more jovial relationship with H. G. Wells as they agreed 'a holiday from agreeing to disagree as we do should provide light exercise and entertainment'.

Correspondence with William Gallacher,  1941-1949

CP/IND/MONT/6/1. This correspondence predominantly consists of an uncorrected copy of a script sent to Gallacher by Montagu and a transcript version of the same. This script is for a short propaganda film where a man who impregnantes a woman and abandons her is shot. The communist characters in the house all provide alibis for each other and a lot of sympathy for Communism is expressed. The film concludes with the policeman departing the scene with the communists to deliver communist propaganda despite the murder remaining unsolved.
