First Edition. Stuart Hay dustjacket art and illustrations in black and white. Humorous movie industry themed novel of "Robin, who came out of the West to visit his uncle, a movie magnate... Picture Charlie Chaplin in a veritable blizzard of custard pies, or Marie Dressler doing a toboggan slide down the Woolworth Building, or all of your pet laugh-makers of the movies in an all-star performance - then bring on a boy who makes the famous offspring of a gentleman named Pick blush with chagrin at the things he forgot to do". The novel is set in New York, as the film industry had not yet moved west to Hollywood. An uncommon title by this author better known for his pulp mysteries, missed by Anthony Slide (The Hollywood Novel). Near Fine, contemporary signature at title page, in Very Good dustjacket, expected soiling to white of panels.
