1 PAUL, ELLIOT & ROBERT MITCHUM Desperate Scenery by Elliot Paul
New York Random House 1954 
First Edition. From the library of Robert and Dorothy Mitchum with the stamp, “From the Estate of Robert Mitchum, Santa Barbara, California” on the front pastedown. Fine copy in a very good dust jacket with some minor fading to the spine and a hint of edge wear. A history of early 20th century Idaho, especially of Pocatello and a dam project at Jackson Hole. Part of Paul's memoir series, Items on the Grand Account. Robert Mitchum (1917 - 1997) was a sleepy-eyed, effortlessly handsome leading man, best known for his work in classic dramas, including film noir, westerns, and war films. Some of his best known films are The Night of the Hunter (directed by Charles Laughton), Out of the Past, Foreign Intrigue, Cape Fear, Farewell My Lovely and The Big Sleep (as private eye Philip Marlowe), El Dorado, The Longest Day, Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo, The Red Pony, Angel Face, Heaven Knows Mr. Allison, The Sundowners, The Grass is Greener, Two for the Seesaw, Mister Moses, Ryan's Daughter, That Championship Season, The Friends of Eddie Coyle, The Yakuza, and Midway. His later career included a starring role in two big-budget Herman Wouk World War II television mini-series, The Winds of War (1983) and War and Remembrance (1988). Remarkably, his only Oscar nomination came for Best Supporting Actor from his role as Lt. Walker in the 1945 film Story of G.I. Joe, directed by William Wellman, based on the books Brave Men and Here Is Your War by Ernie Pyle. Robert and Dorothy Mitchum were married for 57 years and lived together in Santa Barbara, CA. Dorothy passed away in April, 2014 at the age of 94. Their sons James Mitchum and Christopher Mitchum are actors, as is their grandson Bentley Mitchum. Robert Mitchum's last film was the television biopic James Dean: Race with Destiny (1997) playing Giant director George Stevens.
