If your friend, the South American poetess, still wishes to 'interview' me after she has read and understood it - fine and dandy; provided she'll heartily agree to [underlined] quote me (somewhere in the course of her radiotalk) as saying [underlined] exactly this and nothing else -" Followed on a separate sheet by "individuality always was and always will be the one and only reality: I love it.

        Striking original photograph by the highly distinguished Armenian-born Canadian photographer Yousuf Karsh (1908-2002) depicting Weill seated at his desk, pencil in hand, with a score of Street Scene, considered to be Weill's "official portrait"

      [ca. 1946]. 252 x 203 mm. With "Kurt Weill The Playwrights' Co. Photo by Karsh late 1940's" in pencil to verso along with other annotations. Very slightly worn; corners slightly creased; small stain to blank lower margin not affecting image.. Weill, born in Dessau, Germany, became an American citizen in 1943. "He was one of the outstanding composers in the generation that came to maturity after World War I, and a key figure in the development of modern forms of musical theatre. His successful and innovatory work for Broadway during the 1940s was a development in more popular terms of the exploratory stage works that had made him the foremost avant-garde theatre composer of the Weimar Republic...". David Drew and J. Bradford Robinson in Grove online "By far the most widely reproduced of all Weill photographs, it shows him seated at his Brook House desk, immaculately dressed and freshly coiffured, with chin thrust forward as in no other photograph, and pen poised over a page that could almost be a balance- sheet but reveals itself, in the better reproductions, as a page from the rehearsal score of Street Scene. There is no remotely comparable picture, and yet it is impossible to imagine one better suited to the purposes of documenting the 'image and understanding' of 'Weill in America' that has been so vigorously promoted by Brecht scholars in recent years - the image, that is, of one who was at home on Broadway but would have been equally so in the boardrooms of Wall Street or Madison Avenue... The imposture becomes 'genuine' through Weill's endorsement of its impersonal conformity in preference to the introspective and enigmatic figure portrayed not only by Hoyningen-Huene but also, with uncharacteristic insight, by Karsh himself in a second, and quite unknown, portrait taken at the same session in Brook House." David Drew: Kurt Weill, pp. 44-45. Street Scene, an opera in two acts by Kurt Weill to a libretto by Elmer Rice after his own play, with lyrics by Langston Hughes and Rice, premiered in Philadelphia at the Shubert Theatre on December 16, 1946. The work opened in New York at the Adelphi Theatre on January 9, 1947 and ran for 148 performances through May 17, 1947. The present photograph was presumably used in association with the New York premiere. "Weill considered Street Scene his chef d'oeuvre... [His] musical concern was less with originality than with authenticity. The cloying sentimentality is a function of the drama. It also demonstrates how Weill adjusted his musical voice as the drama demanded. Street Scene contains European elements, including allusions to Puccini, even to Wagner. The drama demanded them, too. The description 'American opera' nonetheless applies: it is an opera for America - that is, for a Broadway public; and it is an opera about America, both musically and in terms of plot."

      [Culver City]: Vanguard Films, Inc., 12 August and 10 August 1946. [Culver City]: Vanguard Films, Inc., 12 August and 10 August 1946.. Two volumes. [1],195;[1],205 leaves. Quarto. Mimeographed typescripts, printed on rectos only. Bradbound in stencil printed wrappers. Wrappers slightly nicked and soiled, one upper wrapper detached at upper brad, but very good. A studio rerun of a the 16 April "First Rough Draft (With Dialogue from Novel)" of this adaptation to the screen of Hichens' 1933 novel, accompanied by a first run of the "Third Draft Script." The first draft is credited exclusively to Alfred Hitchcock and his collaborator wife, Alma Reville; the third draft is identified as by James Bridie, based on an adaptation by Alama Reville. According to one source, Selznick had acquired the film rights to the novel prior to its publication, but submission of a preliminary script in 1934 to the Breen Office resulted in assurances that it would not pass muster according to the PCA. So the project was shelved until Selznick returned to it in 1946. It is clear that at that time, scripts from the 1934 effort, as well as from an adaptation attempted at MGM were consulted. In December, the "Final Shooting Script" was reached, after interim contributions by Ben Hecht. The final shooting script is credited solely to David O. Selznick, but acknowledges dependence on the adaptation by Alma Reville. Final screen credit for the screenplay fell to Selznick, and neither Hecht's nor Birdie's contributions were credited. Hitchcock directed, and Gregory Peck, Ann Todd, Charles Laughton, Ethel Barrymore In a role that earned an Oscar nomination) and Louis Jourdan starred, among others, and a 29 December 1947 premiere brought to a conclusion the long and tangled series of attempts to bring Hichens' novel to the screen.

Mitchell, British Equestrian Artists, pp. 407-08; Ordeman, The Aquatints, Drypoints and Etchings of The Derrydale Press, p. 61 . Martin Stainforth is regarded as Australia's leading horse painter, although he was an established artist in his native England before emigrating in 1908. In 1925 he went to America for an extended stay, during which time he painted a number of leading horses, including some of the William Woodward stable which were reproduced as prints by The Derrydale Press. He was noted for his painstaking efforts in making numerous working sketches and watercolors until he felt he had the image just right. States Mitchell: 'stainforth's detail and accuracy in likeness were very fine and very natural. He avoided the pitfalls of flatness and photographic stiffness so often found in this type of work". Printed for William Woodward, a continuation of the series originally begun by The Derrydale Press; when the Press closed in 1942, Frank J. Lowe, its vice-president and sales manager, continued the production of high-quality prints, including additional ones for presentation by Mr. Woodward to his friends

      New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1946. New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1946. First Edition. Fearing, a Communist Party member, was widely respected as one of the great revolutionary poets of the 1930's, and "acknowledged by critics as having anticipated some of the styles and themes of Beat and early New Left poetry" (see Alan M.

Basis for the highly-regarded 1948 film noir, directed by John Farrow and starring Ray Milland, Charles Laughton, and Maureen O'Sullivan. A superb example of a fragile book prone to wear and fading. THE DARK PAGE, VOL.I, p.94. First Printing. Octavo (21cm); black cloth with titles stamped in gilt on the spine; dustjacket; 175pp. About Fine, with some trivial rubbing along the board edges and to the upper and lower left corners of the front panel to note. Dustjacket is unclipped, very lightly rubbed, with a hint of sunning at the spine and a single tiny tear at the upper edge of the front panel; very Near Fine, and among the best examples we've seen.
