Italienische Häuser, Innenhöfe, römische Gebäude und Ruinen sind erfüllt von südlichem Licht, das Wyck mit schwarzer Kreide und Lavierung, im vorliegenden Blatt mit grauer Tusche, vortrefflich wiedergeben kann. Sein zeichnerisches Oeuvre ist verhältnismäßig groß und so ist er in vielen öffentlichen Sammlungen vertreten.

        Dressed to Kill (Original screenplay for the 1980 film)

      Los Angeles: Filmways Pictures, 1979. Draft script for the 1980 film. Dated 1979 on the title page. Based on other drafts we have handled, this draft, precedes the October 10, 1979 draft probably by 2-4 weeks, as this draft has the same page count as that one, but lacks its added revisions. The De Palma film that essentially solidified the director's style, a mix of Hitchcock-esque suspense and intense sexuality. The film begins with a very famous update on the "Hitchcock shower scene," with Angie Dickinson very plausibly filling Janet Leigh's role. The sixth of nine highly distinctive films De Palma made between 1973 and 1984. Green studio wrappers, stamped with the title in gilt on the front wrapperTitle page present, with a credit for screenwriter De Palma and a date of 1979. 106 leaves, mechanically reproduced. Pages and wrapper easily Near Fine bound with three silver screw brads.

      New York: Richard Marek Publishers. (1979). First. First edition. Slightly cocked with accompanying waviness along the spine, a tiny abrasion on the front paste down and bumped corner, about near fine in about near fine dustwrapper with a touch of wear at the heel of the spine and wrinkling along the bottom front edge. Signed by the DeMille. The true first edition of this scarce title, a thriller co-written with Block, a pilot and DeMille's childhood friend. DeMille's co-authorship was originally unattributed, and the book club edition (lacking a priced jacket as this has) is sometimes mistakenly offered as a first edition. Very likely the most difficult DeMille book to obtain, particularly in this condition and signed. Although not marked in any way, this copy is from the distinguished modern first edition collection of Bruce Kahn. .

        Mommie Dearest (Original screenplay for the 1981 film, producer's copy)

      Los Angeles: Paramount Pictures, 1979. First Draft script for the 1981 film. Copy belonging to producer Frank Yablans, with his name in holograph pencil on the front wrapper. Yablans only two screenwriting credits are this film, and "North Dallas Forty" (1979, directed by Ted Kotcheff). A cult classic, based on Christina Crawford's (Joan Crawford's daughter) best selling 1978 memoir, about her childhood and trying to live up to her mother's high standards. Joan, who was a perfectionist at heart, struggled with alcohol, relationships with men, and the pressures of show business, and Christina and her brother Christopher bore the brunt of it all. The careers of both Joan Crawford and Faye Dunaway were on the decline at the time of release, but Dunaway's campy over-the-top acting gave the film life, and helped resurrect her career, while perhaps shedding new, unsavory light on Crawford. However it would be six years until Dunaway's next great performance, in Barbet Schroeder's 1987 film about Charles Bukowski, "Barfly." Set in Los Angeles and shot on location there, with several scenes shot at Joan Crawford's mansion. Gray studio wrappers. Title page present, dated June 15, 1979, noted as FIRST DRAFT (POLISH), with credits for screenwriter Getchell and novelist Crawford. 136 leaves, mechanically reproduced. Pages about Fine, wrapper about Fine bound with three gold brads.

        The Magician of Lublin (Collection of three original title card maquettes for the 1979 film)

      Los Angeles: Golan-Globus Productions, 1979. Three original draft title card maquettes hand lettered by Harold Adler for the 1979 film. Based on the 1960 novel by Isaac Bashevis Singer. The three sketches show different approaches to the title, all distinct from the final lettering design used. Harold Adler was a calligrapher who created hand lettered titles on over 100 films, worked frequently with Alfred Hitchcock, and was a favorite of legendary title sequence designers Saul Bass and Pablo Ferro. In addition to "The Magician of Lublin" his credits include "Comanche!" (1956), "The Man with the Golden Arm" (1955), "The Seven Year Itch" (1955), "Carmen Jones" (1954), "Psycho" (1960), "The Birds" (1963), "In the Heat of the Night" (1967), and "Finian's Rainbow" (1969). In 2012, an exhibition of Adler's work was organized by noted typographer and design historian Jill Bell at the American Advertising Federation, Kansas City. At the turn of the Twentieth century, a Jewish stage magician and con man, whose career has been ruined by womanizing, gets one more shot at the big time by attempting to pull off a never before seen trick. Two leaves. First leaf: 19 x 18 inches. About Near Fine with creasing to the edges. Two designs, executed in black ink on white paper with a holograph notation to the side in blue pencil. Second leaf: 15.5 x 5.5 inches. Black ink on white paper. Near Fine, with holograph notations in blue pencil.

        Dressed to Kill (Original screenplay for the 1980 film, working copy belonging to assistant director William Eustace)

      Los Angeles: Filmways Pictures, 1979. Revised script for the 1980 film. Copy belonging to second assistant director William Eustace, with his name in blue holograph ink on the title page, and his copious notations throughout, almost studious in nature. Eustace's notations detail scenes to be omitted, extras to be used, props on the set, even which scenes included stunt doubles. Working scripts used by people on- and off-scene are varied, particularly regarding notations with attention to detail, and this is an example how different those scripts can be. A defining De Palma film, suspenseful in the vein of Alfred Hitchcock and intense sexuality. The film begins with a very famous update on the "Hitchcock shower scene," with Angie Dickinson very plausibly filling Janet Leigh's role. The sixth of nine highly distinctive films De Palma made between 1973 and 1984. Dark green wrappers with the title and a credit for De Palma embossed on the front wrapper. Title page present, dated 10/10/79, noted as REVISED, with credits for screenwriter-director De Palma. 112 leaves, mechanically reproduced, with pink revision pages throughout, dated 10/10/79. Pages Very Good plus, wrapper Very Good bound with two gold brads.

        Creepshow (Original screenplay for the 1982 film, signed by George A. Romero)

      Burbank: Warner Brothers, 1979. First Draft Script for the 1982 film, "Creepshow," directed by George A. Romero, written for the screen by Stephen King, and starring King, Hal Holbrook, Ed Harris, Ted Danson, Adrienne Barbeau, Leslie Nielsen, and E.G. Marshall. SIGNED by George Romero on the title page: "Stay scared! / George Romero." This an early draft, with the "Laurel Group" address on the title page. The Laurel Group was sold the film rights by Films Around the World at the point when Romero was picked to direct the film. In one of the most successful genre pairings of the 1980s, horror maestros Romero and King came together to write a five-story B-movie anthology that paid tribute to the great E.C. horror comics of the 1950s. The result was a film that belongs in a category with Mario Bava's 1968 "Danger: Diabolik!" and perhaps a few others, wherein the experience of reading a comic book is vibrantly translated to the screen. Another often-ignored fact is this an original screenplay by King, with only two of the five tales in the anthology ("Weeds" and "The Crate") based on short stories previously written by King. Black vinyl studio wrappers, stamped in gilt on the front wrapper. Title page present, with a date of 1979 (3 years prior to the film's release) and a credit for screenwriter King. Tiny holograph ink notation of a first name ("Karen") and a couple of phone numbers at the top of same, indicating that this was probably a working reference copy. 142 leaves, mechanically reproduced, white stock. Pages and wrapper Near Fine, bound with two gold screw brads. In a custom quarter leather clamshell box.

April 1, 1979. Fine condition, on archival linen. In the 1970s and 1980s, Carnegie Hall--as well as forward-looking radio stations such as WKCR and WNYC--hosted a number of important performances by Steve Reich, some of which were formal debuts (e.g., "Music for 18 Musicians" in October 1978), and others that were creative combinations of important avant-garde artists (Sun Ra, John Ashbery, David van Tieghem). This particular performance brought together a stellar grouping that included classical composers (Philip Glass), art rockers (John Cale), and avant-garde jazz (Leroy Jenkins).

        The Postman Always Rings Twice (Two Original screenplays for the 1981 film)

      Los Angeles, CA: Columbia Broadcasting System, 1979. Two draft scripts for the 1981 film. One is a Second Draft script, dated December 1979, the other is an Agency script in promotional printed wrappers, undated. Directed by Bob Rafelson, and based on the 1939 novel by James M. Cain, "Postman" was one of the gems of early 1980 cinema (along with "The Verdict") and neo-noir, and brought David Mamet to the attention of the filmmaking world, leading to his working not only as a screenwriter but an important director. Mamet's grim update of Cain's classic hard-boiled novel was somewhat panned on release, but is today held in high regard, and is considered a major influence on the genre. Shot on location in Santa Barbara, California. Script one: Red studio wrappers. Title page present, dated December, 1979, noted as SECOND DRAFT, with credits for screenwriter Mamet and novelist Cain. 123 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 121. Photographically reproduced. Pages and wrapper Near Fine, bound with two gold brads. Script two: Black printed wrappers. Title page present, undated, with credits for screenwriter Mamet and novelist Cain. 118 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 117. Photographically reproduced.

        Straight Life: The Story of Art Pepper (Signed First Edition)

      New York: Schirmer Books, 1979. First Edition. First Edition. SIGNED by Art Pepper on the front endpaper. An astounding and underappreciated jazz autobiography. In just a few years, Pepper established himself as one of the greatest alto saxophonists of the be-bop era, often thought of as second only to Charlie Parker, and certainly a prime innovator in the West Coast jazz scene. But beginnning in 1954, difficulty with drug use caused Pepper to be incarcerated almost constantly (four separate terms) until 1965. Toward the end of his life he managed to stay clean, and during that time wrote this autobiography with his wife Laurie. The autobiography serves not only as a portrait of a great jazz artist, it is also a great document of not only the jazz world of the mid-century, but also the world of drug users and criminals on the West Coast during that time. Soon after publication of this book, Don McGlynn released the documentary, "Art Pepper: Notes from a Jazz Survivor," which featured extensive interviews with Pepper, his wife, and others. Pepper died only three years after the book was published, in 1982, and signed copies are rare. Fine in a bright, about Near Fine dust jacket, with a touch of wear to the jacket crown.
