Reading script: absolutely cheap nonsense strung on historical absurdities.
1st review of Ant: a good one in the Mail by Douglas West.
Lunch at Simpsons , Piccadilly with Tom, Julie, Laura, Honor.
To Greek & Cretan Exh. [Exhibition] at Burlington House, fitting at Allen's for brown suit, boo[RG] shoes once more to Hanan for refitting (walk down Burlington Arcade beautiful jewels). Too tired to go out to Nancy & Dudly's party: Laura went. Finished script wrote angrily to Korda. Bed.
