Description:
Copenhagen: Paramount Pictures, 1950. Vintage one-color Danish program for the 1949 film noir, here under the Danish title "Den Store Gatsby - Spritsmuglerkongen." Text in Danish.

Done in a film noir style, and still considered by many to be the best of several screen adaptations, created at the point when the book's reputation was finally beginning to take hold. Set in New York. 4.5 x 6 inches. 4 pages, side-stapled. Near Fine, with faint edgewear.

Description:
Washington, DC: Capitol Music, 1932. Original sheet music for the song "Take Me to the Dance Marathon," played by impressario Zeke Youngblood at the beginning of each of his marathons, and dedicated to him. Interestingly, this copy is signed by seven couples on the front wrapper, each also accompanied by a number, indicating that they were likely participants in one such contest. Although they had existed in one form or another for centuries, dance marathons, where partners needed to continually dance or move in order to avoid elimination, achieved their cultural zenith during the Great Depression, where couples would go to sometimes extreme lengths to compete for prize money, as dramatized in the classic 1935 proletarian novel "They Shoot Horses Don't They" by Horace McCoy. Concern for the health of the participants, as well as pressure from churches and women's groups, led to the gradual dying out of the phenomena, although they are still staged by colleges as charity events today. 9.25 x 12… Read More
