A Cast of Killers - used book

1982, ISBN: 0525243909

ID: 2212902

On February 1, 1922, the distinguished silent-film director William Desmond Taylor was shot to death in his Los Angeles bungalow by an unknown assailant. Reports of strange activities at the scene of the crime circulated soon after. When the police arrived, was the head of Paramount Studios burning a bundle of papers in the fireplace, and was a well-known actress searching the house for letters she claimed were hers? Despite a full-scale investigation, the case was never solved; for sixty years is has remained a lingering Hollywood scandal. In 1967, more than forty years after Taylor's death, the great King Vidor, whose directing credits include Northwest Passage, The Fountainhead, Duel in the Sun, and War and Peace, determined to solve the mystery, which had haunted him throughout his career, in order to make a film about it. Through his intimate knowledge of both the studios and the stars, he succeeded, where dozens of professional detectives had failed, in discovering the identity of the murderer. But because his findings were so explosive, he decided he could never go public and locked his evidence away. After Vidor's death in 1982, Sidney D. Kirkpatrick, Vidor's authorized biographer, gained access to the evidence and reconstructed the amazing story of Taylor's murder and Vidor's investigation. With a cast of suspects that includes the actress Mabel Normand, a reputed drug addict; the beautiful ing?nue, Mary Miles Minter; Mary's domineering mother, Charlotte Shelby; actors and entertainers,arts and literature,biographies,entertainers,fiction,humor and entertainment,murder and mayhem,political science,true accounts,true crime True Crime, Dutton

New York: E. P. Dutton & Co.. Near Fine in Near Fine dj. (c.1986). 3rd printing. Hardcover. 0-525-24390-9 . [minor shelfwear, top front corner bumped; jacket shows almost no wear, "Autographed Copy" label on front panel (which can be removed at buyer's request)]. (B&W photographs) SIGNED by the author on the title page. "The Sensational True Story of Hollywood's Most Scandalous Murder--Covered Up for Sixty Years and Solved at Last by the Great Film Director King Vidor." Well, true enough that the long-unsolved 1922 murder of director/ playboy William Desmond Taylor was "Hollywood's Most Scandalous Murder" -- equally true that director King Vidor was long obsessed with the case, right up until the time of his death in 1982 -- but it's evidence of its continuing fascination that despite the claims of this book, many people still don't think the case has been "solved at last." Still, a compelling read, even as you find yourself occasionally wishing that this terrific story had been placed in the hands of a somewhat more adept writer. Signed by Author ., E. P. Dutton & Co.
