With Love always, Mervyn.Ó Mervyn LeroyÕs career as a film director is as diverse as it is distinguished with perhaps its crowning achievement being The Wizard of Oz and also includes such classic works as Gold Diggers of 1933, Tugboat Annie, Waterloo Bridge, Madame Curie, Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo, Quo Vadis, At the Circus (a Marx Brothers film), and The House I Live In, a short documentary on intolerance for which he received a special Academy Award. In 1957 he was the recipient of another special Oscar, the Irving Thalberg Memorial Award, for his many achievements over the years. Mike Frankovich was the adopted son of comedian Joe E. Brown. He co-directed the film Heart of New York with Mr. Leroy and produced many fine films, including Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, Cactus Flower, The Looking Glass War, ThereÕs a Girl in My Soup, The Love Machine, and Butterflies are Free. Mr. Frankovich received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award in the 1984 Oscar ceremonies. Illustrated. Fine in a fine dust jacket. A book of memoirs. Bookseller Inventory # 11030E
