Sweet smell of success : the short fiction of Ernest Lehman by Ernest Lehman( Book )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Best known as the basis for the classic film starring Tony Curtis and Burt Lancaster, and soon to be a major Broadway musical, Sweet Smell of Success is a dark and gripping novelette about media manipulation and the will to get ahead - by any means necessary. Lehman scathingly depicts the dark side of success through the twisted relationship of Sidney Falco, an ambitious publicist, and J.J. Hunsecker, a powerful and vindictive gossip columnist, fashioned after Walter Winchell. As scandals are manufactured and reputations ruined for sport, the story spirals downward toward one last, savage act of revenge."--Jacket
