First Edition. Collection of twelve original stories ready for screen adaptation written perhaps ironically after Lipton's long career as a screenwriter ended. From the Sydney Kingsley blurb at front jacket panel: "Sooner or later literature not only lends but borrows from all other art forms. Here we have an indication of how films may effect literary technique. Mr. Lipton has provided a volume of picture stories which is at once text for the student, substance for the film producers and interesting reading for the laiety". This copy inscribed to Hollywood gossip columnist and reporter Jimmy Starr, "To My pal Jimmy: - / With best wishes / Lew". Near Fine in Very Good plus dustjacket with nicking to spine ends.
