His father humiliated, a teenage boy vows bloody revenge Every sports fan in New York knows Al Judge, the hard-bitten reporter whose column is the scourge of gamblers, gangsters, and corrupt players across the city. Sixteen-year-old George LaMain is Judge’s biggest fan—right up until the night he decides the writer has to die. George is in his father’s saloon, waiting for his dad to give him his birthday present: a trip to the fights at Madison Square Garden. They are about to leave when Judge demands George’s father strip and lie down on the barroom floor. George doesn’t know why, but his old man does it—and Judge beats him senseless in front of the whole bar. When he’s finished crying, George takes his father’s gun and sets out into the night. To avenge his disgraced father, he plans to gun Al Judge down. But before he can become a killer, this birthday boy will have to grow into a man.

Following up on his well-received bibliography of first edition sources for American film noir of the 1940s, Kevin Johnson's new bibliography The Dark Page II explores the second half of the classic American period, covering the years 1950-1965. Ground rules for noir style were by this time firmly established in Hollywood, and new techniques and themes had emerged, including location shooting and documentary-style storytelling, the incorporation of social issues into storylines, the final years of the Production Code's stranglehold on film content, and the influence of the style on Westerns, melodramas, and even science fiction. Importantly too, this era would see many of Hollywood's finest writers and directors blacklisted, jailed, or exiled as a result of McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities hearings. The literary sources that informed this era evolved as well, with Hollywood taking a greater interest in the surprisingly literate novels that were being published as paid-by-the-word paperback originals, as well as hardcover titles being released by obscure and often short-lived publishers. The influence of the film industry on the book industry was felt in turn, with stories being snatched up as film options as soon as they first appeared in magazines and newspapers, sometimes resulting in a book publication that would never have occurred otherwise. The Dark Page II is an essential volume in a continuing series of references that are projected to cover American screwball comedies, European film noir, and American crime films and dramas of the late 1960s and 1970s. Full-color photos of each first edition are featured, as well as bibliographical points for each book and a bounty of factual information surrounding both the origins of the books and their subsequent film adaptations.

Tragedy And Civilization

Drawing on comprehensive analyses of all of Sophocles' plays, on structuralist anthropology, and on other extensive work on myth and tragedy, Charles Segal examines Sophocles both as a great dramatic poet and as a serious thinker. He shows how Sophoclean tragedy reflects the human condition in its constant and tragic struggle for order and civilized life against the ever-present threat of savagery and chaotic violence, both within society and within the individual. Tragedy and Civilization begins with a study of these themes and then proceeds to detailed discussions of each of the seven plays. For this edition Segal also provides a new preface discussing recent developments in the study of Sophocles.
