First Edition, photoplay novelization of the famed 1931 James Cagney classic gangster film. A Near Fine copy, only the tiniest of blemishes (virtually no wear, bright green topstain unfaded). Really excellent for an example without the exceedingly rare DJ. With four black & white stills from the movie. INSCRIBED BY JAMES CAGNEY to "Edna & Jack Cordes/with all good wishes/ James Cagney." THE PUBLIC ENEMY (voted by the American Film Institute as the 8th greatest crime film in American film history) was a 1931 American Pre-Code crime film starring James Cagney and directed by William A. Wellman. The film tells the story of a young man's rise in the criminal underworld in prohibition-era America. Co-starring Jean Harlow, Edward Woods, Joan Blondell, and Mae Clarke. The screenplay is based on a never-published novel by two former street thugs: "Beer and Blood" by John Bright and Kubec Glasmon (who had witnessed some of Al Capone's murderous gang rivalries in Chicago!) A remarkable book in itself, one of those rare Grosset & Dunlap publications (like King Kong) which actually served as a first edition. And to find it signed by its star James Cagney? Say no more!
