His work includes "Stranger on the Third Floor" (1940), "The Uninivited" (1944), and "The Snake Pit" (1948), each groundbreaking in the areas of film noir, ghost stories, and insane asylums, respectively.

Description:
NY: Knopf, 1943. Bound in light green cloth, stamped in forest green. Only flaws to book are a bit of dustiness to edges and a small number 5649 written on the ffep. The dustwrapper has had some minor restoration work done to the top of the spine. Shows a little darkening to the rear panel. But no chips, tears to speak of. One of 6000 copies in the first edition. Overall, a tight, clean copy of the book in original dustwrapper -- rare in this protected condition. Basis for the bizarre movie directed by George Haight of the same title that starred Robert Montgomery as Marlowe -- but because of the "subjective camera" method -- you rarely see the actor. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine.
