ADVENTURE, October 1, 1932

A great Hubert Rogers cover graces this 1932 issue with an all-star author lineup.

Jon Tuska, THE FILMING OF THE WEST, 1st edition

Garden City, NY: Doubleday & Company, 1976. Large octavo, hardcover in dust jacket. First edition. Tuska’s book is hardly “the definitive behind-the-scenes history” its front-cover blurb promises; it’s riddled with factual errors (most minor, but some major) and questionable conclusions drawn from incomplete data, and the author commits the unpardonable sin of using his tome […]
