      London: William Heinemann Ltd., [1950]. - First edition. Fine in dust jacket with light wear to spine ends and the extremities. Rollo Martins comes to Vienna, a city still controlled by the four occupying powers, expecting a job from his old friend Harry Lime, only to arrive in time for his funeral.

The 1949 film, THE THIRD MAN was directed by Carol Reed, with Graham Greene as the screenwriter. The film starred Orson Welles, Joseph Cotton, Trevor Howard, and Alida Valli.

It was originally published in 1935 using the title of THE BASEMENT ROOM.

        Congressman Kennedy uses his influence to obtain a shore assignment for a fellow veteran of the Solomon Island campaign where JFK gained renown for his exploits saving the crew of PT-109

      "Typed Letter Signed, ""John Kennedy,"" as United States Representative, 1 page, 7.75"" x 10.5"" on his congressional letterhead, Washington, March 21, 1950 to John H. Artesani, a specialist aboard the U.S.S. Shenandoah responding to a request a shore duty assignment. Usual folds, small toned spot at left margin not affecting text, else very good. Kennedy writes in full: ""Further reference is made to your desire to secure an assignment to shore duty with the United States Navy. I am enclosing, herewith, a copy of the letter [not present] I have just received from Captain W. O. Burch, Head of the Enlisted Detailing Section of the Bureau of Naval Personnel, Department of the Navy, Washington 25, D.C., which speaks for itself. I have contacted the Commander, Service Force, U.S. Atlantic Fleet, in your behalf, and shall keep you posted as to the results of my efforts in that direction."" Artesani (1926-2010), a Boston native, enlisted in the Navy in November 1942 and served on several ships including the U.S.S. O'Bannon, a Fletcher-class destroyer that served in the Solomon Islands at the same time Kennedy was commanding PT-109. In a twist of fate of which Kennedy was most likely unaware, Artesani's ship, the O'Bannon fought in the Battle of Kolombangara (July 12-13, 1943) which, although a tactical victory for the Japanese, proved to be a strategic loss as it forced their naval resupply ships (popularly known as the ""Tokyo Express"") to begin using the narrow Blackett Strait. In response, the U.S. Navy deployed torpedo boats (including Kennedy's) to harass Japanese ships plying the narrow strait between Kolombangara and Arundel Islands. On the night of August 2, the Japanese destroyer, Amagiri, returning from a resupply mission, rammed PT-109, splitting the craft in two. Artesani, aboard the O'Bannon, was more than likely within 50 miles of Kennedy when this occurred, as the destroyer was patrolling the nearby Vella Gulf. Kennedy's bravery in saving his crew garnered him national celebrity and in no small part launched his political career. The O'Bannon later served in the Philippines including engagements at Leyte Gulf, Bataan, Corregidor, and Cebu. The O'Bannon also had the honor of being one of the escorts for the U.S.S. Missouri when she entered Tokyo Bay in September 1945 in preparation for the Japanese surrender ceremonies. (Muster rolls of U.S. Navy ships, stations, and other naval activities, 1939-1949.)"

        Marilyn Monroe boldly signs an attractive early contract for her appearance in a movie

      "Document Signed, ""Marilyn Monroe,"" two pages, 8.5"" x 21.5"", [Beverly Hills, California], January 5, 1950, a yellow Screen Actors Guild freelance contract between Monroe and Thor Productions for her appearance as the character ""Polly"" in the 1950 film, The Fireball starring Mickey Rooney and Pat O'Brien (described in this document under the working title, ""Dark Challenge""). Countersigned by producer, ""Bert Friedlob"". File holes at top, light soiling at margins, horizontal crease, else very good to fine condition. The Fireball was the story of an orphan, ""Johnny"" (played by Rooney), who runs away from Father O'Hara's orphanage to become a roller-skating star. As his fame rises, he is chased by numerous women (including Polly) who he realizes love him only for his fame. Johnny then contracts polio and spends the balance of the film recovering. Monroe signed the contract at a relatively low point in her career. Just the year before, financial concerns prompted her to pose nude for a photo session. However, soon after The Fireball's release, Monroe's career began to gain momentum and she began booking roles in more serious films. That same year she auditioned for John Huston who cast her in Asphalt Jungle. Her performance brought strong reviews, as well as the the notice of Joseph Mankiewicz, who cast Monroe in All About Eve."
