Elmer Gantry

New York: Harcourt, Brace, 1927. First Edition; first binding. A fine copy in a dust jacket with some tiny chips and tears and very light soiling. A film adaptation wasn’t made for 33 years, until the 1960 production of the same title, which starred Burt Lancaster and Jean Simmons. This delay allowed a more realistic version than might have been possible nearer publication. It might be interesting to see it made yet again, set in the present when the Gantrys have moved indoors to mega-churches and fly around in jets to praise the Lord and pass the hat.
