Why Girls Go Back Home: A Story of the Stage, Based on the Motion Picture Story
by Brody, Catharine
New York: Jacobsen-Hodgkinson-Corporation. Fair. (c.1926). First Edition. Softcover. NOISBN . [pretty beat-up, with heavy external wear (covers edgeworn/creased, small piece missing at bottom front corner, etc.), tears in title page and first page of text, bottom inch or so of spine covering missing, etc.]. (Popular Plays and Screen Library) Series (B&W photographs) A cheaper version of the popular "Photoplay Editions" issued mostly by Grosset & Dunlap and A.L. Burt, this is a novelization of the 1926 Warner Bros. film of the same name, starring Patsy Ruth Miller and Clive Brook. Illustrated with a whopping TWO stills from the film, plus small portraits of the six principal actors on the rear cover (including a very young Myrna Loy). The author, who later turned out several well-regarded Depression-Era novels, was given story credit on the movie, although it's unclear whether it was based on a specific published story or was a screen original; it's equally unclear how this particular book might resemble (or not) whatever "story" the movie was derived from. .
