I, Mobster. [Signed by Director Roger Corman].

Los Angeles, CA: ALCO Pictures Corp./Twentieth-Century-Fox Film Corp. nd [1958]. First Edition Thus/Unique Edition. Full Leather. This movie appears to have some interesting historical significance, as it appears to be the first film based on a pulp novel. Originally published in 1951 as Gold Medal Original #171 by “Anonymous”, I, Mobster appears to be the first film drawn from a modern book never published in hardback. Many such pulps have been turned into films, good and bad, but this *appears* to be the first. Privately bound by the music producer. Written by Steve Fisher. Directed (and signed by) Roger Corman.
