Currently reading ‘Writers in Hollywood, 1915-1951 by Ian Hamilton. So far, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Nathaniel West, Mae West, Dorothy Parker & Raymond Chandler are present & accounted for - up to the late #1930s. So many more - plus juicy gossip about the big Studio owners & producers. This is heavy light reading, especially if you are obsessed with the myth of Hollywood, as I am. #writers #Hollywood #HollywoodHistory #screenwriters #photoplays #fscottfitzgerald #dorothyparker #maewest #nathanielwest #raymondchandler #book #bookstagram #instabook #dtlabooksellers. Most writers said they wrote movies for the money with no illusions about quality or credits.
First U.K. Photoplay Edition of FRANKENSTEIN . An important photoplay edition, as it was the first to feature a photo of Boris Karloff as the Frankenstein moster on the jacket. Scarce in such presentable condition; the UK photoplay turns up far less frequently than its American counterpart.
