1 EVANS, MAX Sam Peckinpah -- Master of Violence. Being the Account of the Making of a Movie and Other Sundry Things.
Vermillion Dakota Press 1972 
First Edition. Signed and inscribed by actress Stella Stevens, who starred in The Ballad of Cable Hogue, playing the role of Hildy, inscribed: “Love! Stella Stevens, ‘Hildy.'” Ms. Stevens has used heart shapes for the bottom of the exclamation mark and to dot the ‘i' in ‘Hildy'. Evans' personal account of the making of the Peckinpah directed film, The Ballad of Cable Hogue, for which he wrote the screenplay. The film also starred Jason Robards, David Warner, Strother Martin, and Slim Pickens. Illustrated. Fine copy in a lightly dust soiled price-clipped dust jacket with some fading to the outer edges and spine, a 1 1/2” tear at the rear spine fold, a couple of very small tape stains, and a few tiny nicks. Jacket blurbs decry: “This is a man's book. A no-holds-barred book. The focus is on two men, both crusty and tough and sometimes violent, both talented and discerning and often tender.” The lovely Stella Stevens' film debut was a bit part in Say One for Me (1959), but her appearance in Li'l Abner (1959) as Appassionata Von Climax is the one that launched her acting career. She went on to do some modeling for Playboy and appeared in many films, including Too Late Blues (1961) with Bobby Darin, Girls! Girls! Girls! (1962) with Elvis Presley, The Courtship of Eddie's Father (1963) with Glenn Ford, The Nutty Professor (1963) with Jerry Lewis, and in The Silencers (1966) with Dean Martin.
