About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Eyes in the Night (Photoplay Title of "The Odor of Violets") by Kendrick, Baynard.

Description:

Photoplay of the MGM film noir starring Eward Arnold and Ann Harding. Book is probably 1942, the year the movie came out. Extremely clean and fresh book except for discreet area of insect nibbling along top edge of boards. But it is inconspicuous and inoffensive. The pages are somewhat tanned, possibly true of most copies due to cheap paper used. Dust jacket is likewise fresh, with red background on spine somewhat faded and a closed, 1" tear to rear panel. This photoplay edition has no interior photos of stills from the movie as one would expect, merely the still featured on the dust jacket. VG/VG. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Grosset & Dunlap / Madison Square edition, New York, 1942. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. Grosset & Dunlap "Photoplay" reprint of a book originally published by Little, Brown and Company. Copyright 1941 but the MGM film was released in 1942. A production still from the B&W film appears to jacket front panel, but there are no internal illustrations. (And yes, the most recognizable performer on the cover -- Donna Reed as the daughter -- gets no billing!) Pages moderately age-toned but still flexible & easily read. Dust jacket missing top half inch of its spine, and said spine is sun-faded from red to light brown. With the only clue to the crimes being the faint odor of violets encountered at each murder scene, it's a stroke of luck that the investigator on the trail of a bold Nazi saboteur turns out to be Capt. Duncan Maclain, a blind man who solves cases with the aid of his two German shepherds and a group of household assistants including Mantan Moreland. The "B"-budget Fred Zinnemann film did well enough to merit a 1945 sequel, "The Hidden Eye." During World War II, author Kendrick served as an instructor for blinded veterans, an experience from which he drew material for his later book "Lights Out," successfully filmed as "Bright Victory." From 1937 to 1961 Kendrick -- who held membership card No. 1 in the Mystery Writers Association of America, serving as the group's first president -- actually wrote 14 Duncan Maclain mysteries. 309 pp. Seller Inventory # 006068

Book Description Grosset & Dunlap, New York, 1942. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good plus. [320pp, top edge grey]: [vi], 314 (last two leaves blank); stamped violet cloth, jacket; 210 x 144 x 30 mm. First thus & first this title (originally 1941: Little, Brown). A movie tie-in, evident only from the elusive jacket which features a posed still from the film (including Donna Reed in only her third role); film release, 16 October 1942. A very nice copy, despite the wartime materials. A patch of cloth at crown of rear board is discoloured. The scarce jacket remains bright (with red spine panel miraculously unfaded) though the upper edge of the rear panel is partly tape-reinforced within. Three small edge-tears at crown of rear panel & a tiny chip out at crown of spine, comprise the only significant signs of wear. Very scarce thus. Seller Inventory # 001362
