Off Stage

New York: Simon and Schuster, (1995).

Price: $600.00

Hardcover. First edition. A trifle foxed at the foredge and endpapers, near fine in a lightly soiled, near fine dustwrapper. Biography of the Broadway and Hollywood legend, half of the Comden and Green collaboration, writers of *Singin' in the Rain* and other great films and musicals. Very nicely Inscribed by the author to Gloria Jones, wife of the author James Jones: "To Gloria, my beautiful friend – the first to read this and say she thoguht it was good – With love, Betty January 1995." Gloria Jones is one of a few people mentioned in the acknowledgements (in terms similar to the inscription), and is pictured in the photos accompanying the text. A nice association.
