About this Item

What fun to have a program from the 1939 hit stage play, The Philadelphia Story, starring the elegant Katherine Hepburn. Not only is there a long interview with the leading lady, but also lots of wonderful photos from the show, an article about its author, Philip Barry, and another about its director, Robert Sinclair. Also fun to check out are the bios of the cast members who include such noteables as Shirley Booth, who later became known for her TV role as Hazel the maid; Van Heflin and Joseph Cotten.The program measures 9"x12" and is very clean and well bound. There is a small bit of wear to upper left corner near spine and a light fade to outer front edge. Program was lightly folded by its former owner -- most likely the night of the play. The back cover with its cartoony art offers praise by the reviewers.Walter Winchell wrote this: "New Yorchids: Katherine Hepburn's new hit "Philadelphia Story' -- the best comedy in town. A delightfully amusing and refreshing show, blessed, too, with an exceptionally good troupe of entertainers, besides the electric Hepburn." Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
