The Dark Command
London: William Heinemann, 1938. UNCORRECTED PROOF, preceding the First UK Edition. Basis for the Academy Award-nominated 1940 film directed by Raoul Walsh starring John Wayne, Roy Rogers, and Claire Trevor; the only film in which Wayne and Rogers appear together, and the second of only two films on which Wayne and Walsh worked together after Walsh discovered Wayne as a 23 year-old prop man.
A woman marries a seemingly peaceful Kansas schoolteacher only to find that he attacks both sides during the Civil War for his own profit.
Very Good in trade size wrappers (softcover). Repair to an inch and a half-sized loss to the bottom right hand corner of the front wrapper, lightly wear and soil.
