The author, a Nevada writer and prospector, was a pioneer in the investigation of the legend of The Lost Dutchman Mine; his book on the subject, Thunder God's Gold, was adapted for the 1949 Hollywood film "Lust For Gold," starring Glenn Ford and Ida Lupino. However, Storm was deeply unhappy with the film and especially with its depiction of him as the fictional grandson of the original "Lost Dutchman". In this work, Storm mounts an extended, rambling, at times incoherent bastinade against the film's producers, whom he accuses of being part of Hollywood's "red network", and against the Hollywood film industry which, in his words, "stands shackled to the funeral pyre of treason by commie propagandists who sway public opinion to the uses of a foreign conspiracy." A rare entry in the Hollywood Red Scare pantheon; OCLC finds only seven locations; none others in trade (2014); never before seen by us. Octavo (8-1/2"). Stapled pictorial card wrappers; 18pp text, 30pp facsimiles. Slight external wear and soil; Near Fine. Bookseller Inventory #
