Once in a Lifetime

New York: Farrar & Rinehart, (1930).


First edition. Pencil owner name, and top corners slightly bumped, still fine in a near fine dustwrapper with a small, shallow chip on the rear panel, a little tanning and a small, very faint stain on the spine. Stage play that was the basis for a hilarious 1933 Russell Mack-directed film featuring Jack Oakie and Zasu Pitts about three con artists who take advantage of Hollywood's panic over the advent of talkies by posing as voice coaches. A very nice copy, and scarce in jacket.
