Twentieth century by W. F Norton( Visual )

10 editions published between 1934 and 2005 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This companion piece to His Girl Friday is a hardboiled farce about theatrical personalities. Hecht and MacArthur's play, on which the script is based, is an irreverent screwball variant on the Svengali-Trilby story. The two lovers live life and respond to each other as if on a stage. The gamut of human emotions is a pretext for play acting. Full of feigned sentimentality, the film parodies the egotism of actors

My story by Marilyn Monroe( Book )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written at the height of her fame, but not published until over a decade after her death, this autobiography of actress and sex symbol Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) poignantly recounts her childhood as an unwanted orphan, her early adolescence, her rise in the film industry from bit player to celebrity, her marriage to Joe DiMaggio, and more. The Marilyn in these pages is a revelation: a gifted, intelligent, vulnerable woman who was far more complex than the unwitting sex siren she portrayed on screen. Lavishly illustrated with photos of Marilyn taken by renowned photographer Milton H. Greene, this special book celebrates the life and career of an American icon- from the unique perspective of the icon herself. -- Publisher description

A thousand and one afternoons in Chicago by Ben Hecht( Book )

28 editions published between 1922 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1921, Ben Hecht wrote a column for the Chicago Daily News that his editor called "journalism extraordinary; journalism that invaded the realm of literature." Hecht's collection of sixty-four of these pieces, illustrated with striking pen drawings by Herman Rosse, is a timeless caricature of urban American life in the jazz age, updated with a new Introduction for the twenty-first century. From the glittering opulence of Michigan Avenue to the darkest ruminations of an escaped convict, from captains of industry to immigrant day laborers, Hecht captures 1920s Chicago in all its furor, intensity, and absurdity
