(B&W photographs) The story of one of the more tempestuous show-biz partnerships of all time, by a Hollywood insider (Son of Groucho) who "not only comes up with many new and amusing revelations and anecdotes about his protagonists, but, at the same time, gives the reader a shocking glimpse ino the cutthroat world of show business, where money is king, no holds are barred (either in front of the camera or in the bedroom), and past loyalties are forgotten in the mad scramble for superstardom."

2 Marx, Arthur The Ordeal of Willie Brown
New York Simon and Schuster 1951 NO First Edition Hardcover Fine in Very Good+ dj Illustrated by (dj design) Frederick E. Banbery 
[clean tight copy, with no discernible wear; jacket has a little wear and a couple of tiny tears/nicks along top edge, one-inch closed tear at bottom of front panel, very light soiling to rear panel]. Son of Groucho's first book, a novel about America's Number One Tennis Bum -- "the story of Willie Brown, his arduous trek through the Eastern grass court circuit, and his brief rendezvous with the National Singles title, 'one of the many titles,' Willie would tell you, 'that I was lucked out of winning last year.'" The author knew wherefrom he wrote, tennis-wise: he had been a nationally-ranked amateur tennis player as a teenager prior to serving in the Coast Guard during World War II, after which he settled down to a long and productive career as a writer in every medium: radio, movies, TV and the stage. In addition to a handful of novels, he also wrote several books about his father (starting with "Life with Groucho" in 1954) and a number of well-regarded biographies of show business figures. A surprisingly scarce book.
