N.p. N.p., Circa 1956-1959. Original illustrated humorous essay by Terry Southern and William Pene Dubois, satirizing (or perhaps elucidating) the dress habits of their distinguished friend, American screenwriter William Rose.
Southern and Dubois met in the late 1950s, both under the tutelage of William Styron, while both of them were associated with The Paris Review. During this time William Rose wrote his most famous screenplay, "The Ladykillers" (1955) as well as the British classic, "The Maggie" (1954). He would go on to win an Academy Award for his original screenplay "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" (1967).
