1 Lait, Jack; from the scenario by Edmund Goulding The Broadway Melody
New York Grosset & Dunlap (c.1929) NO First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dj 
[minor wear at extremities, light dampstain surrounding base of spine; jacket somewhat faded, with a bit of wear and small tears at several orners, one tiny chip at bottom of front panel]. (8 B&W film stills) Photoplay Edition (and true first edition, a G&D original), a novelization of the backstage musical film that won the year's Academy Award as Best Picture. Depicting a thinly-veiled Ziegfeld Follies (the book's impresario is named "Joseph Zanfield," changed to "Francis Zanfield" in the film), this version of the yarn benefits from author Lait's breezy, proto-hardboiled prose style, which ages a little better on the page than the early-talkie creakiness of the film has on the screen. Illustrated with eight black-and-white stills from the M-G-M movie, which starred Charles King, Anita Page and Bessie Love, with the ever-popular Jed Prouty (later father "John Jones" in the Jones Family series) in support. 
Price: 35.00 USD
