2 Ford, Bryant (pseud. for Michael Blankfort) Show Business: A Mystery Novel
New York Dodd, Mead & Company 1939 First Edition Hardcover Very Good 
(no dust jacket) [light shelfwear, very slight fraying to bottom corners, light soiling to yellow cloth covers, spotting to top page edges, one-time owner's name and address at top of ffep]. A "Red Badge Detective" novel, a murder mystery set in New York's theatrical world. When Broadway's most successful producer (who is also the "best hated man in show business") is stabbed to death, suspicion naturally falls on his press-agent -- who admittedly didn't like the guy, but also happens to have what looks like a perfect alibi. The author was better known as a screenwriter under his own name, Michael Blankfort; this was his only novel using the Ford pseudonym.

3 Blankfort, Michael The Brave and the Blind
Indianapolis The Bobbs-Merrill Company (c.1940) NO First Edition Hardcover Good in Fair dj 
[decent reading copy, ex-lending library book but marked as such with only one stamp; the problem is the jacket, which has been trimmed slightly along top/bottom edges, and is encased in one of those old-fashioned jacket protectors with the black strips along top/bottom, then is additional glued AND taped to the endpapers, permanently I'm afraid; there's also some paper loss at base of spine, but it hardly matters]. The author's second novel, set during the Spanish Civil War.
