BRUSH, Katharine. Red-Headed Woman. New York: Farrar and Rinehart, (1931).
First Edition, Advance Review Copy in Original illustrated wrappers. Brush's risqué novel of a red headed vamp who steels her boss from his wife served as the basis for the ever popular pre-code Metro-Goldwyn-Meyer black and white talking film directed by Jack Conway and featuring Jean Harlow and Chester Morris. The film solidified Harlow's career in Hollywood and was banned in England for its salacious content. Despite some defects, this is a Very Good copy, wide strip of transparent tape along inside of title page and opposite front free endpaper, some relatively minor loss to spine ends, scotch tape along front outer spine edge. A notoriously difficult title to find, especially so in an advance copy.Item #15590
