Book Description Samuel French (c.1944, 1941), New York/Los Angeles, 1944. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good dj. First Edition. [moderate shelfwear to bottom of book, slight fading to cloth at top edges of covers, very slight fraying to cloth at top of spine; the jacket is somewhat discolored along the spine, with very shallow chipping along top edge, and also note that it's been internally tape-reinforced at all the fold points, and that the wear along the edges of the front panel has been neatly "touched up" with some kind of black marker, the bleed-through of same being visible on the inside of the jacket, but only noticeable on the outside if you're looking for it]. (B&W photo frontispiece) Dramatization of the 1940 novel by Eric Shepherd, about the investigation by Scotland Yard of a murder that takes place in a convent boarding school. The play had its first production, under Lavery's direction, at the Wilshire-Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles in 1942, but doesn't appear to have ever made it to Broadway. The plum role of the school's Reverend Mother was portrayed (through the courtesy of M-G-M) by Margaret Wycherly, undoubtedly best remembered for her role as James Cagney's hard-boiled mother, "Ma Jarrett," in the 1949 film WHITE HEAT. Co-starring as the Scotland Yard Inspector was Pedro de Cordoba, not to be confused with Fred de Cordova. Seller Inventory # 21777
