MBD,


Thank you very much! I knew I had seen it somewhere around here, but I couldn't for the life of me seem to find it again. I just had forgotten (and had ruled out) that it had been inside a magazine. I guess I had just thought the pictures had been bigger. I seem to remember somehow being able to look into Martin Mull's eyes, but that may just be wishful thinking.

Thank you again :D

I was looking through the presskits. I would NEVER have thought to look in the magazines.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

Hooray! My copy's arrived! :D Listening to it now, I hear a lot of little subtleties in the music that didn't actually stand out in the actual film. Very intricate soundtrack!

Congrats. I'm afraid I couldn't persuade my parents. On the bright side, I managed to find some insanely elusive Golden Age mysteries.

Do tell! The damnable thing about those old books is I don't even usually know their titles or authors, just that they're out there and hard to find. What are some of the white whales in your collection?

The End Titles sound like something out of a pinball game - you think it'd work on a pinball cab?

I'm actually thinking of reviewing my many mysteries via online videos, so I might be able to physically show them off sometime. I have some minor treasures, including a first edition paperback of Clayton Rawson's The Footprints on the Ceiling (which is a big step down from his masterpiece, Death From a Top Hat, but still enjoyable). I've got a bunch of cool Pocket Books from the 1940s with really elaborate covers, ranging from Ellery Queen's The Egyptian Cross Mystery to John Dickson Carr's Nine- And Death Makes Ten. Some pain-in-the-butt ones to find that I managed to get include Rex Stout's The Black Mountain(that was a great find- the cheapest copies I found online were $13, and the ones I found in a certain store were $24, but I managed to get it for $3), Anthony Boucher's Nine Times Nine, Darwin Teilhet's The Talking Sparrow Murders (Teilhet set it in Nazi Germany, and it apparently includes powerful insight, years before the Nazis became a "popular" topic for social commentary-- he was one of the first to notice that they were ruining a country he loved), Kelly Roos' The Frightened Stiff, and a few by a hilarious comic mystery author, Craig Rice (who had a tragic life and died rather young).

But the book I'm proudest of is a first edition of John Dickson Carr's (writing as Carter Dickson) Fear is the Same-- and some soul had the insight to preserve the dustjacket. That was a steal-- and it took me almost 3 years of hunting to track a good copy down! I got it really cheap, too; $5, I think, compared to the $25 a reprint from 2000 is going for on AbeBooks (with shipping).

All I have to do now is find Devil Kinsmere by Carr-- but that's a book that can sell for thousands on auctions! I don't want to collect these books- I want to read them. Unfortunately, they're usually rare by definition.

Very sorry to hear this! The music, in particular the main credits, are such an important part of my favorite movie ever! I will listen to the soundtrack again in his honor. RIP Sir.

Did anyone on here manage to snag a copy of the soundtrack when Mondo released it on vinyl about two years ago? There is a small resale market for copies, and I am wondering if the quality -- vinyl and sleeve -- justify the markup.
