SIGNED. Near Fine. Stated First edition, first printing with complete number line ending with 1. Signed by Sam Staggs on the title page. Book is tight and square with solid hinges, good corners and clean unmarred boards. Textblock is clean with no writing, bookplate or markings and not BCE, ex-library or remaindered. Dust jacket is unclipped ($29.95) with mild wear to corners. B&W photos. Protected in a Brodart cover. In a passionate and witty behind-the-scenes expose, the author of All About "All About Eve" takes on the classic 1959 Douglas Sirk film starring Lana Turner. Born to be Hurt is the first in-depth account of director Sirk¿s masterpiece. Lana Turner, on the brink of personal and professional ruin starred as Lora Meredith. African-American actress Juanita Moore played her servant and dearest friend, and Sandra Dee and Susan Kohner their respective daughters, caught up in the heartbreak of the black-passing-for-white daughter in the 1950s. Both Moore and Kohner were Oscar-nominated as Best Supporting Actress. The author combines vast research, extensive interviews with surviving cast members, and superb storytelling into a masterpiece of film writing. Entertaining, saucy, and incisive, this is irresistible reading for every film fan. Bookseller Inventory #
