Six Television Plays

New York: Simon and Schuster, 1956. First Edition. INSCRIBED by the author to fellow playwright Neil Simon: "To Doc and Joan / #10 / Bright? He's a common ignorant slob! He dont even speak good English! / #11 / He doesnt even speak good English / as long as he writes good English! / Thanks for buying this one / Best / Reggie / Feb. 15, 1957." Doc and Joan are Neil Simon and his first wife, Joan Baim, a dancer. Simon received the nickname as a kid, when he would pretend to be a doctor and always carry a toy stethoscope. The inscription alludes to an inside joke between the three, as well as a close relationship.

Near Fine in a Very Good plus or better dust jacket. Light rubbing at the extremities, and a few white specks at the rear board. Jacket spine slightly toned, with brief chipping at the crown, and light shelfwear. Jacket design by William Bunce.

Each of the plays included appeared on "Studio One [in Hollywood]" (1948-1958), a Columbia-produced television series, with the exception of "Crime in the Streets," which appeared on "The Elgin Hour," and which was adapted to film in 1956. One year later, "Twelve Angry Men" was adapted into an Academy Award nominated film (as "12 Angry Men") directed by Sidney Lumet and starring Henry Fonda.

A notable association between two prestigious screenwriters.
