        The 8 million dollar girl Marlowe is going to be married to" - Superb original picture postcard written and sent by Chandler from Palms Springs to his publisher Hamish Hamilton in London

      Palm Springs: No Publisher 1957 - Superb original picture postcard written and sent by Chandler from Palms Springs to his publisher Hamish Hamilton in London. Postmarked Palm Springs: 24th December 1957. A "Giant Post Card" with "Greetings from Palm Springs" printed on the front over a picture of Palm Springs Plaza sent by Chandler to his publisher in London. In fine condition apart from some slight creasing and two punch holes, only affecting the letters "ut" in "but" and the first "l" in "alcoholic" in the second last line. This gem is as good as it gets: Address ("Hamish Hamilton, Esq., / 90(50?) Great Russell St., / London, W.C. 1, / England.") and text written entirely in Chandler's hand. The text reads as follows: "Dear Jamie: Here are so few of these oversized nonsenses that I may have sent you this one before. But don't kick me, I'm old and weak. Thanks for letter which I shall answer very soon. Went to a party last night at a home which is the ideal setting for the 8 million dollar girl Marlowe is going to be married to in my next after the one I am finishing up. They'll have a hell of a time squabbling. The party was elaborate but the same old thing. Elaborate catering and decorations, but the same loud empty alcoholic voices. Love to all. Ray." Note that "Jamie" is how friends called Hamish (Hamilton). At the time and as mentioned in the text, Chandler was putting the finishing touches on his novel Playback, which ends with Linda Loring ("the 8 million dollar girl" of The Long Good-Bye fame) calling Marlowe and asking him to marry her. This is the first time Chandler mentions marriage and the setting for the beginning of his last novel The Poodle Springs Story. This is the only time we have ever seen Marlowe's name in Chandler's handwriting. Also, we know of no other text of this length and content entirely in Chandler's hand.

"Ich kann mich noch jeder Theatervorstellung meines Lebens erinnern, während auch den besten Filmen etwas Zweidimensionales anhaftet, das sie im Gedächtnis verblassen macht wie alte Daguerrotype. Liegt das daran, daß wir nicht mitgespielt haben, wie das Publikum im Theater es doch irgendwie tut? Ist es der leichtverderbliche Konservencharakter des Films, der die Erinnerung an ihn so schnell zerfallen läßt? Oft bin ich, das weiß ich, im Kino erschüttert oder amüsiert gewesen, doch erinnern kann ich mich nur noch an die Schauspieler, nicht an ihre Szenen, weil jene wiederkehrten, diese aber nicht [...]". - Etwas angestaubt und mit kleinen Randläsuren sowie redaktionellen Anstreichungen in blauem Farbstift.

        Arbres et Voiles

      Paris, au vent d'Arles, 1957.. Paris, au vent d'Arles, 1957., 1957. En feuilles sous chemise toilée écrue, illustrée, à rabats.. 45/31 cm, 6 ff.n.c., 11 pl., 2 ff.n.c., 10 pl.. Un des 40 ex. sur vélin d'Arches comprenant une eau-forte originale en couleurs signée, 10 planches ( 7 en couleurs, 3 en noir), et une suite des planches en noir. Préface d'André Verdet. La gravure originale a été réalisée par Robert Dutrou sur les presses à bras de l'atelier Crommelynck. La couverture, de toile écrue, est illustrée d'un dessin en couleurs crée spécialement par l'Artiste pour cette édition. Le présent ouvrage alterne les arbres du midi chers à Pignon et les voiles, les titres sont les suivants : Le vieil arbre - Ostende - Paysage jaune - La Minque. Ostende - Les collines de Vallauris - Le cheval blanc - Le renflouement - L'olivier du père Brun - Automne à Bandol - La jetée de Sanary. Édouard Pignon naît à Bully-les-Mines en 1905, dans le Pas de Calais. Il s’installe à Paris en 1926. Sa rencontre avec Picasso en 1936 est décisive pour sa peinture qu’il conçoit comme une « quête de la réalité ». Il se consacre exclusivement à la peinture dès 1938. Il fait désormais partie de la « Jeune peinture Française ». Un séjour à Collioure en 1945 est à l’origine de la série des catalanes, il nouera là une profonde amitié avec le peintre Willy Mucha. Dans ses recherches il privilégie désormais le mouvement. Il travaille en 1952 chez Picasso à Vallauris et développe d’autres séries, comme les oliviers, puis les battages et pousseurs de blé après de longs séjours en Italie. Le mouvement incessant de la vie il le traque ensuite vers 1962 dans les séries dramatiques des batailles et des seigneurs de la guerre. Il travaille aussi pour le théâtre, pour Vilar et le TNP. Sa rétrospective au Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris en 1966 se termine sur la nouvelle série des plongeurs qu’il a réalisée à Sanary. Pignon nous fait percevoir la puissance de la vie. Il poursuivra sans cesse ces recherches et si les séries des Nus, des Bleus de la mer et des Dames du soleil semblent apaisées, rien n’est immobile, il traque alors l’exaltation du mouvement au repos. Ouvrage en très bel état.

      The "poor man's Marilyn Monroe" is remembered for breathless, ditzy roles in films of the late '50s and early '60s such as "Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?" (1957); she was decapitated in an auto accident. Hargitay was a Hungarian-born bodybuilder who won the "Mr. Universe" title in 1956; as one of Mae West's musclemen in her stage show, he came to the attention of starlet Jayne Mansfield; once wed, they appeared together in films such as "The Loves of Hercules" (1960) and "Promises! Promises!" (1963), and he appeared in other B movies such as "Primitive Love" (1964), the Italian kitsch classic "Bloody Pit of Horror" (1965), "Spree" (1967), "Wild Wild World of Jayne Mansfield" (1968), "Lady Frankenstein" (1971), "The Reincarnation of Isabel" (1972) and "Delirium" (1972). Choice pair (of photographs, that is): Hers is an IPS, 8" X 10", n.p., 1961 August 28. Very good. Faint yellowish tape stain at each corner. Scene from "Kiss Them for Me" (1957) showing Mansfield full-length in profile standing in a shipyard, holding up a poodle cheek to cheek. She inscribes it hugely and flamboyantly "To Donald M. Burnell -- / Affectionately, / Jayne / Mansfield / 8/28/61." (The dots on both "i" letters and even the period are drawn as hearts, of course.) His is likewise an IPS, 8" X 10", n.p., 1961 August. Very good. Faint yellowish tape stain at each corner. Full-length flexing "muscle shot" in a teeny swimsuit, inscribed large and bold in thick fountain pen "To Don / Burnell / Sincerely / Mickey Hargitay / Aug. 1961." A superb and scarce duo, signed to the same admirer on the same day.

An excellent copy in a jacket with a faintly sunned spine panel which is very lightly chipped at head and tail. First edition, first impression. With the complete signed transcription of the title poem in the author's hand on the front free endpaper and his drawing of a serpent above 10 lines of original poetry on the rear free endpaper: "When the earth flies Seeing shall not need eyes. Your striding with strong legs Is breaking who knows what eggs? Put your foot on the ground So lightly there is no sound. Maybe then friend, You will get right to the end – And not fall to the bite of the earth which flies at night." Hughes has also annotated every poem with the date and place of composition and added the word 'black' to the seventh line of "Wind". The Hawk in the Rain was Hughes's first book. It was published shortly after he married Sylvia Plath, to whom it is dedicated, and received the Somerset Maugham Award in 1960. In a letter to her mother Plath wrote about the experience of reading the proofs of The Hawk in the Rain with Hughes: "Ted has made some alterations, which I have limited. He would rewrite a poem to eternity and stop the presses.

        It's time for Tina / The songs of Tina Louise

      Concert Hall, New York 1957 - Not a book, but an original 12-inch vinyl LP record, VG in VG-plus (downgraded for some small but visible scratches, which play through but do cause one unmistakable pop during the fifth track of Side One, "I'm in the Mood for Love.") Original H-1521, not the re-release on Urania. Features Buddy Weed on piano, Hilton Jefferson on alto sax and Coleman Hawkins (yes, really) on tenor sax. Tracks include "Embraceable You" and "Let's Do It," on the latter of which the lovely but generally slow-breathing Miss Louise finally demonstrates she was NOT doped up on Nembutal for these sessions. (At least the sultry pace leaves lots of room for sax fills.) Before she played the quintessential Stepford Wife (1975), Tina Louise Blacker of course portrayed movie star Ginger Grant on "Gilligan's Island" from 1964-67, making her the correct answer to the question "Ginger or Mary Ann?" Her only known LP. Hey, it wasn't THAT bad. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
