[nice copy, binding solid (no small matter in a book of this heft), light shelfwear and minor soiling to bottom edge; jacket shows a little wear along the bottom edge, with a couple of tiny tears at bottom corners and a horizontal crease/wrinkle along the bottom of the front panel, short diagonal creases at top corners of both flaps]. (B&W photographs) An endlessly fascinating read-through of the correspondence files of the legendary producer of GONE WITH THE WIND and other classics (and an occasional non-classic) -- albeit, as editor Behlmer explains in his foreword, presenting "a rather one-sided case, with no opportunity for the several victims of Selznick's unhappiness or, in some instances, wrath, to offer rebuttals or countercharges." The selection of memos -- from among two thousand file boxes of papers -- was a monumental task, and although it was by necessity a highly selective process, at the end you feel like you've gotten a pretty comprehensive picture of DOS: "at times pontificating and overly fussy," as the editor allows, but "also brilliant, knowledgeable, tasteful, painstaking, and possessed by what he was doing."
