Dulcy, A Comedy in Three Acts

Dulcy, A Comedy in Three Acts. New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1921.

First Edition. Photographic still from the play featuring star Lynn Fontanne by F. De Gueldre at front dustjacket panel. Booth Tarkington introduction and Neysa McMein frontispiece. Exceptionally scarce play by Kaufman and Connelly especially so inscribed and signed by both authors at front free endpaper to pioneer female author, stage actress and journalist, Nellie Revell. Revell had several Jazz Age novels and screenwriting credits to her name as well as a number of newspapers she regularly wrote for. Dulcy, described at the jacket as, "clever, satirical comedy, in which the leading character is a charming, child-like, irresponsible, well-meaning, feather-brained young hostess" served as the basis for the three silver screen versions, most notably in 1930, as Not So Dumb, directed by King Vidor and starring Marion Davies and Elliott Nugent. Very Good or Near Fine but for some surface erosion to fore-edge of pages, in a Very Good dustjacket with some edge chipping and wear.

Price: $2,000.00
