Book Description Penguin Books Australia / Jonathan Cape, Ringwood / London, 1978. Pictorial Wraps. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Contains both the short story and screenplay adaption (which is published here for the first time). Illustrated with 16 b&w photographic stills from the movie. The short story originally appeared in the collection "The Cockatoos: Shorter Novels & Stories", first published in 1974 by Jonathan Cape. "The Night The Prowler, adapted by Patrick White from his short story, has been made into a film presented by the New South Wales Film Corporation. Directed by Jim Sharman, The Night The Prowler stars Ruth Cracknell as Doris Bannister, John Frawley as Humphrey Bannister, and Kerry Walker as Felicity. John Derum appears as John Galbraith, Maggie Kirkpatrick as Mrs Bannister's friend Madge, and Terry Camilleri as the prowler. Ruth Cracknell was nominated in 1979 for an AFI Award for Best Actress in a Lead Role for her part. Jim Sharman began an association with Nobel Prize winning author Patrick White after directing a few of White's plays in the seventies. Patrick White had made the statement to Sharman that he believed two of his stories, The Cockatoos and The Night The Prowler, would adapt well to the screen. It was Sharman's belief that the latter would be the more cinematic of the two and White subsequently agreed to write the screenplay. The Night The Prowler opened the 25th Sydney Film Festival in 1978. Although the general response to the film appeared to be quite good, many critics in the media viciously hammered the film. For this reason, the film's official public release was delayed for twelve months. When the film eventually did open in 1979, it only screened for a couple of weeks and barely rated a mention in the press. The film is set in Centennial Park, a middle-class suburb in Sydney (where Patrick White lived at the time, and where director Jim Sharman grew up)." Printed in Australia. Slight shelfwear with mild rubbing to covers, former owner's neat ink name & date to first page, small marginal ink line to one page only, otherwise a nice clean tight solid softcover copy. 158pp. SCARCE. SB-255. Size: 19.5 x 13cm. Seller Inventory # 016000
