(no dust jacket) [nice copy, no significant wear, light spotting on front cover]. In the wake of M-G-M's refusal to let Saroyan direct the film version of his novel "The Human Comedy," the bitter author poured his bile against Hollywood into this play, in which an idealistic author is pitted against a crass movie studio head. The latter character was quite obviously patterned after Louis B. Mayer; the former (a surrogate for Saroyan) was played by Richard Widmark in the orignal Broadway production, which ran for only thirteen performances.
