The hucksters by Jack Conway( Visual )

6 editions published between 1947 and 2011 in English and German and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Hucksters (1947) is a considerably sanitized version of the best-selling novel by Frederic Wakeman. Directed by Jack Conway, the film is a slick but still powerful, and at times darkly funny, indictment of the seamy side of advertising, radio, and big business. Clark Gable plays a World War II veteran who gets a job in advertising, and finds that his work requires him to often abandon his principles. Deborah Kerr, in her American film debut, plays an English widow Gable falls in love with, and Ava Gardner has one of her first important roles as a nightclub singer who's a former girlfriend of Gable's. In a deliciously flamboyant performance, Sydney Greenstreet tears into the juicy role of a villainous soap tycoon, Gable's major client
