To go with the weather, I've been reading "spring releases" both foreign and domestic, both dark and cozy (I'll start writing about them tomorrow), while Dave's been rediscovering some great Richard Stark (Donald Westlake) items. Here they are:
RICHARD STARK AT THE MOVIES, 1973: EPHEMERA
This is the MGM Pressbook for the movie The Outfit. The pressbook is 8 1/2 inches wide by 13 1/2 inches tall. From Richard Stark's (Donald E. Westlake) novel The Outfit. 16 pages. 1973.
Directed by John Flynn and the screenplay was by John Flynn. The stars of the film were Robert Duvall, Karen Black, Joe Don Baker, Robert Ryan, & Joanna Cassidy. Interesting twist: For the movie they changed the name of the main character in the Richard Stark novels from Parker to Macklin.
BOOK JACKETS: The Outfit
We have two copies of this Richard Stark (Donald E. Westlake) novel in stock. On the left is a British hardcover published in 1988 by Allison & Busby. This was the first time The Outfit was printed in hardcover. Note the image of Lee Marvin on the cover. The other is the paperback (right), which was published by Avon in 1984.
