Précieux exemplaire du livret-programme publié par les Productions théâtrales Georges Herbert, distribué à l'occasion de la représentation au théâtre Antoine des Possédés (les Démons), pièce en 3 actes d'Albert Camus, d'après le roman de Dostoievski, créée à la scène le 30 janvier 1959 : exemplaire doublement signé ; par Pierre Blanchar, interprète de Stépane Trophimovitch Verkhovensky, un "cordial souvenir" au-dessus de son portrait ; et par Albert Camus, en tête du court texte de présentation de la pièce, "Les Possédés à la scène" : "à Simon Ben Soussan, avec les pensées affectueuses". Camus introduit la pièce par "Les Possédés à la scène", texte d'une page dans lequel il explique sa confrontation à Dostoievski : "Pour porter [les Possédés] à la scène, il a fallu plusieurs années de travail et d'obstination". Près de deux décennies auparavant, en mai 1938, Camus avait porté sur scène une adaptation des Frères Karamazov avec sa troupe du théâtre de l'Équipe à Alger ; peut-être songeait-il déjà à cette période à adapter les Possédés ?

        The Deputy (Producer's archive of scripts for an NBC television series, 1959-1961)

      Universal City, California: Top Gun Production Corp. for Revue Studios. Near Fine. 1959-61. Hardcover. These two handsome quarto volumes, well-bound in full red morocco, contain the producer's own archive of a ground-breaking and significant American television show -- "The Deputy," which ran on the NBC network for two seasons between 1959-1961. It was the first tv series to feature a major movie star at the height of his box office appeal -- Henry Fonda. Fonda was featured as U.S. Marshal Simon Fry, his co-star was Allen Case (as local storekeeper and reluctant deputy Clay McCord -- an expert shot who hated to use a gun), along with veteran actor Wallace Ford (as Silver City Sheriff Herk Lamson), also a young actress Betty Lou Keim (as Fran McCord, the sister of Clay McCord). Veteran actor Read Morgan, as Sergeant Tasker, appeared in the second season of the show. There were a number of guest stars throught the run, including DeForest Kelley, Lon Chaney, Jr., Wallace Ford, Vivian Vance, Richard Chamberlain, child actor Gary Hunley, Ann McCrea, Denver Pyle, and Robert Redford (whose first official television credit was for a 1960 episode of the show). "The Deputy" is also worth remembering as the first show to have been created by the now-legendary Norman Lear -- (best known for a remarkable run of shows including All in the Family, Sanford and Son, Maude, and The Jeffersons). Lear's career in television reached back to the beginning of the 1950's as a writer, and he did earn a credit as producer of "The Martha Raye Show" after its creator, Nat Hiken, departed to create and run "The Phil Silvers Show," but "The Deputy" is Lear's first credit as (co)-creator -- [with veteran screenwriter Roland Kibbee]. The sole credit as producer of "The Deputy" belonged to former owner of this pair of volumes: Michel Kraike [1908-2006] -- whose name is lettered in gilt at the lower right corner of each front cover. Interestingly, this ownership stamp "PRODUCED BY / MICHEL KRAIKE" -- uses one of the five variant spellings which the Internet Movie Database dutifully cites for the veteran producer's many credits. (Generally, the earlier movies and "The Deputy" production credits read: "Michel Kraike, but for some earlier television work, he also used the form "Michael"). Mr Kreike's career as a movie producer dated back to 1943 ["Night Plane from Chungking"]. His best film was probably the noir classic "Criss-Cross" of 1949 (with Burt Lancaster, Yvonne De Carlo, and Dan Duryea), but now Kraike's most famous production must be the 1951 film "Bedtime for Bonzo" -- which took on a second life when its genial star, Ronald Reagan, changed careers later in life. There are scripts for 13 episodes in each of these two volumes -- typescript, mostly reproduced in purple "spirit duplicator" on rectos only of sheets of paper in various colors (white, yellow, pink and pale blue -- which track various revisions of each script). At least a few leaves are direct carbon copies from the typewriter, on thin paper. Several changes to dialogue appear scattered throughout, in pen and pencil manuscript. The volume containing the first 13 episodes of the second series has two production stills bound in the front (8" x 10" glossy color photographic prints, with colors now a bit faded. The first depicts Henry Fonda as Marshal Simon Fry standing with Read Morgan, as the one-eyed cavalryman Sergeant Hapgood Tasker; the second production still photo depicts Alan Case as the deputy Clay McCord, also standing with Read Morgan as "Sarge." Also bound in is a cover of the "TV VIEW" section of a Sunday New York "Journal American " -- with a color caricature of Henry Fonda and Alan Case, in costume, guns in hand. There is a clipped review of an episode from Daily "Variety" laid in. It had been affixed to a blank leaf of the relevant episode's telescript with old cellophane tape, but the adhesive has dried, but not before causing a minor stain to that leaf. Otherwise, the condition of the bindings and their contents are fine and clean, throughout. The Deputy is not forgotten, even 53 years after its two year run on NBC concluded, as witnessed by the publication of a 2010 book: "Henry Fonda and the Deputy: The Film and Stage Star and His TV Western" by Glenn A. Mosley. Also, Timeless Media Group released 12 episodes on DVD in 2008, and subsequently released a 12 disc set with all the episodes in 2010. For the curious, two episodes have slipped into the public domain and as of this writing, can be seen in full on you tube -- (Hard Decision, The Return of Widow Brown). While screenwriters, directors and producers have often kept leather-bound copies of scripts as a memorial of their work, few such volumes have been produced with bindings as nicely done as these two volumes saving scripts from "The Deputy" for its producer. The un-named binders used first class materials, and their gilding and finishing is done to very high standards. Their owner, Michel Kraike, nearly lived to see the DVDs of his show; he survived several months past his 98th birthday. .
