Charles E. Burchfield, Journals, September 11, 1947

Sept. 11 (Thurs.)—

                Worked all day on the “G.S.B.” [Genesee St. Bldg] Picture—at the end B said it did not come up to my “standard” for such pictures—and I could see she was right. The interest is too general—I felt discouraged.

                Evening—to Maxine to see “Cheyenne”—a run of the mill Western, with more than the usual number of clichés thrown in. We went chiefly to get away from the weather, which has grown monotonously unbearable.
