6 MCCARTNEY, PAUL, BERNARD HERRMAN, ERICH VON STROHEIM The Complete Greed - A Reconstruction of the Film in 348 Still Photos Following the Original Screenplay. Plus 52 Production Stills - Compiled and Annotated with a Foreword by Herman G. Weinberg
New York Dutton 1972 
Signed presentation inscription copy from Paul McCartney to the great film composer Bernard Herrmann. Inscribed by Paul McCartney, on the half-title, "To Benny from Paul - you'll have to supply the score for yourself - I'm sure you'll have no trouble. I hope we can work together again." The first large format paperbound edition of the book that reconstructed from film stills, Erich Von Stroheim's infamously butchered and lost ten hour version magnum opus (described in such terms as the "Holy Grail" and the "Magna Carta" of film) that was only ever shown as the two-and-a-half hour film Greed in 1924. Portrait frontispiece, and numerous black and white photographs in the text throughout. Quarto. Printed card wrappers, as issued. Extremities rubbed, creases to spine and front wrapper, some light marks, internally clean. A very good copy. Enclosed in a handsome custom cloth clamshell box. Bernard Herrmann (1911-1975) is considered by many to be the greatest composer of film music. The Beatles reputedly based the strings in Eleanor Rigby on Herrmann's famous strings for Alfred Hitchcock's film Psycho. His film scores include Citizen Kane, Vertigo, Taxi Driver, North By Northwest, The Day the Earth Stood Still, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, Jane Eyre, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, Fahernheit 451, and numerous other distinguished films. Herrmann was one of the earliest discoverers of The Beatles when he met them performing in an English club in 1962. He got on the band personally and when he returned to Los Angeles brought their early German records and unsuccessfully tried to get Universal Records to sign them. While still a Beatle in 1966, McCartney was commissioned to write the film score for the film, The Family Way, and his friend Herrmann stepped forward and gave McCartney lessons in film scoring. A remarkable association copy.

11 [GONE WITH THE WIND - THE FILM]. MARGARET MITCHELL Gone With the Wind Screen Test Script
Los Angeles Selznick International Pictures 1939 
Original mimeographed three-page “Reading Scene” screen test script between the characters of Belle and Melanie dated November 28, 1938 given to actress Billie Dove for a screen test as producer David O. Selznick sought out the recently retired actress to play Belle Watling in Gone with the Wind. The scene is the classic moment when Melanie thanks Belle Watling for lying to save her husband Ashley Wilkes from being arrested by occupying Union soldiers. The script is accompanied by a Western Union telegram to Billie Dove from agent Arthur M. Landau, January 18, 1939, in part: “Please telephone me … on receipt of this wire as David O. Selznick is interested in talking to you about the part of Belle Watling in Gone with the Wind”; with a Typed Letter Signed to Dove from Landau on his agency Artists and Authors Corporation of America, January 30, 1939, in part: “David Selznick still thinks that you are right for the part of Belle Watling in Gone with the Wind. He tells me that he did see you recently at some function...From a personality standpoint you may be just what he wants...within the next twenty four hours he will have his representive Mr. Maxwell Arnow or [film director] Mr. George Cukor call on you in person and discuss the part....” Billie Dove, was a star who enjoyed tremendous popularity in the silent era earning the popular nickname of The American Beauty, had retired from films in 1932. The roles in this massive production were actively competed for, and despite Selznick's efforts to entice her, Dove could not be lured into returning to the screen, and the role of Belle Watling went to Ona Munson. Accompanied by the original envelopes for the telegram and letter. This is the only screen test script we have seen to have survived from Selznick's screen tests to cast the production.
