Title: TYPED LETTER, SIGNED (AUTOGRAPH)
Publication Date: 1956
Halliday, Brett. ONE PAGE TYPED LETTER, SIGNED ["Brett"]. New York, April 1956. Prolific author of the Mike Shayne series of novels, Halliday (actually born Davis Dresser b. 1904 d. 1977) writes back to a friend who has requested a press photo: "Having some copies of the Halliday pic knocked out and you're on the list." The letter is in FINE condition, a nice example of his autograph. As per wikipedia: The first Shayne novel was rejected by 21 publishers before being accepted by Henry Holt & Co. in 1939. The Shayne series went on to be highly successful, reprinted in many editions. Twelve motion pictures were made, seven of them featuring Lloyd Nolan as Shayne. Five of the Nolan films, which were produced by 20th Century Fox, have been released on DVD: Michael Shayne, Private Detective; Sleepers West; Dressed to Kill; Blue, White and Perfect; and The Man Who Wouldn't Die. After the Fox series ended, five more Shayne films were made which featured Hugh Beaumont as the detective. There was also a TV series in 1960, starring Richard Denning. The 2005 film Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is based partly on Halliday's novel Bodies Are Where You Find Them. Bookseller Inventory # 001633
