(price-clipped) [nice clean copy, minimal shelfwear; jacket shows only minor edgewear, faint soiling, a couple of tiny tears at top of spine]. Memoir by ace reporter-turned-Hollywood publicist. At the time of the book's publication, he had only recently gone to work for David O. Selznick (he handled the publicity on GONE WITH THE WIND), so this book primarily focuses on his early career as a newspaperman, during which he covered numerous sensational stories, among them the execution of Ruth Snyder and Lindbergh's departure for Paris. He went on to a long career in Hollywood, working for (among others) Howard Hughes on THE OUTLAW -- for which he devised what has been called "a sales campaign of unbridled vulgarity," centered around Jane Russell's anatomical endowments. Foreword by Gene Fowler.
