Film and copy of the film review.
1. “Four Women Writers of 19th Century New Orleans,” by Danella Hero,
writer-producer. Dix is one of the four writers portrayed in the special
local TV program. The four women depicted (in order of appearance) are:
Eliza Poitevant Nicholson (Pearl Rivers), newspaper publisher and poet;
Kate Chopin, novelist and short story writer; the prolific writer Grace
King; and Dorothy Dix, journalist and syndicated columnist. Fine Hour of
TV Program, January 24, 1988.
2. “Local literary ladies’ ‘place,’” by David Cuthbert. Review of the
film states that the Dix segment is sketchy where Mrs. Nicholson’s (who
hired Dix) is rich and colorful. Times-Picayune, January 24, 1988.
