[nice clean copy, light wear extremities; jacket rubbed, spine and front panel somewhat faded, a couple of tiny edge tears]. SIGNED by the author, with a brief inscription (and his phone number), on the front pastedown. "Growing up in the Bronx in the thirties and early forties, [the author] went to the movies almost every single weekend, developing a lifelong affection for even the most obscure productions of the period. [His book], a wide-ranging collection of memories and meditations, is testimony to that affection. It is both a vivid reconstruction of the impact of these movies on a ten-year-old viewing (not to mention the often agonizing circumstances attending his attendance) and a more objective assessment of the stars, bit players, studios, producers, directors, and other contributors to the prolificacy of the time as viewed from the perspective of the mature enthusiast." Includes a chapter on Horace McCoy's screenwriting work. Signed by Author . (Inventory #: 14219)
