World of Melodrama, 1967 Frank Rahill
World of Melodrama, 1967 was written by Frank Rahill. Hardcover. First Edition.
Melodrama was--and in most theaters still is, the most widely practiced of all dramatic forms.
And this book tells its historical story in the best way possible--in melodramatic form! Read a page and you are hooked! I have included the first page of the chapter on the "Ten, Twent', Thirt'" one of the most popular theater entertainments in America.
This book is in fair vintage condition because it has been read, line-marked on quite a number of pages, and the dust jacket shows the shelf wear. BUT the binding is very firm and strong; there are no tears in the text, and no marks obscure the clarity of the text.
Your curiosity concerning theater entrepreneurs will be rewarded.
The book measures 6 inches by 9 inches by 1 inch and has 333 pages.
