THE NAME ABOVE THE TITLE. An Autobiography. Illustrated from Photographs. Frank Capra.

THE NAME ABOVE THE TITLE. An Autobiography. Illustrated from Photographs

New York: The Macmillan Company, (1971). First edition. Hardcover. This copy has the bookplate of Frank Buxton (1930-2018) on the front pastedown. Frank Buxton was an American actor, television writer, author, and television director. Frank Capra has briefly inscribed and signed his name to Buxton's bookplate. This book provides a star vehicle for one of the few really great men of moviedom. The history of Hollywood and the story of Frank Capra's forty-year career there run parallel: the rise of the motion picture from Mack Sennett's Keystone Klown Kollege through the triumphant years of the best and best-loved movies ever made, many of them with Capra's name above the title. 513pp with index. A very good plus to near fine copy with foxing to foredge and top edge, in a nearly fine crisp dust jacket. Item #14370

Price: $200.00
