From the opening of the introduction by Jack Kerouac: “That crazy feeling in America when the sun is hot on the streets and music comes out of the jukebox or from a nearby funeral, that's what Robert Frank has captured in tremendous photographs taken as he traveled on the road around practically forty-eight states in an old used car (on Guggenheim Fellowship) and with the agility, mystery, genius, sadness and strange secrecy of a shadow photographed scenes that have never been seen before on film.”

17 O'CONNOR, NANCY FIELDS (FRED E. MILLER) Fred E. Miller: Photographer of the Crows

First Edition. Oversize paperbound format, 11” x 11”. Signed and inscribed by the author / editor, Nancy Fields O'Connor to actress Lois Nettleton. Inscribed: “To my darling special friend Lois Nettleton whose enthusiasm and encouragement and unique friendship are such treasures to me! With gratitude, admiration, and love. Nancy Fields O'Connor, Malibu - August 12, 1987.” Laid in are errata and addendum sheets. Very good copy with some minor discoloration to the outer front cover and a bit of fading and scuffing to the spine in printed wrappers. A comprehensive presentation of photographer Fred E. Miller's (1868 - 1936) portraiture work with the Native American culture, especially the Crow people of southern Montana. Lois Nettleton (1927 - 2008) was a lovely, versatile, and gifted actress and is perhaps best known for her film work in the 1960s and 70s, and later enjoyed a long career as a character actress in television and in film. Miss Nettleton was crowned Miss Chicago in 1948 and went on from there to develop an acting career, first on stage at Chicago's Goodman Theatre and then in New York at the Actor's Studio, where she made her Broadway debut in the 1949 production "The Biggest Thief in Town" under the stage name Lydia Scott. In 1955 she was Barbara Bel Geddes's understudy in the role of Maggie in the original Broadway production of Tennessee Williams Pulitzer-Prize winning play "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," staged and directed by the great Elia Kazan, during which time she was able to appear on stage several times. She received the prestigious Clarence Derwent Award for her acting in the play "God and Kate Murphy." Some of her films include Period of Adjustment (1962), Mail Order Bride (1964), The Man in the Glass Booth (1975), and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982). Over the years she made many appearances on television in both dramatic and comedic roles, and won Emmy's for her work on a daytime special "The American Woman: Profiles in Courage" (1977), and for "A Gun for Mandy" (1983), an episode of a religious-themed series "Insight." Her appearance in the classic television series The Twilight Zone, in the episode "The Midnight Sun" is a must-see fan favorite. She was married for a time to the radio and television humorist and writer, Jean Shepherd, and also appeared with him in his off-Broadway play "Look Charlie" in 1959. She wowed critics and audiences with her performance of Blanche DuBois in a 1973 Broadway revival of Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire and was nominated for a Tony Award for her work in the 1976 play They Knew What They Wanted by Sidney Howard. She last appeared in public at the 2007 Twilight Zone Convention in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey.
