(no dust jacket) [moderate wear to extremities, age-toning to edges of text block, one-time owner's small address label at top corner of front pastedown, faint staining to front cover, two-inch tear in bottom of pages 147/148]. Romance that takes place in and around Hollywood rather than a "Hollywood novel" per se -- but although bibliographer Anthony Slide more or less dismisses it as having "little film-related material," there's still a certain amount of local-color interest, as the characters move about Southern California -- going to the races and the casinos in Tia Juana, attending a Hollywood premiere, enduring industry shop-talk at a Beverly Hills party, dining at Henry's and the Cafe Montmartre, etc. The author was a step-daughter of actor William Demarest, according to some sources.
