NOTE: Ordering the book directly from the publisher will ensure that you get it as soon as it’s released. If you order the book from Amazon, there’ll be a delay because the publisher has to ship the books to Amazon’s fulfillment centre and THEN they ship their pre orders from there.
So, if you want the book as soon as it’s released, without delays, order directly from McFarland.
The 1952 film, O. Henry’s Full House featured five short stories, all penned by O. Henry. “The Cop and the Anthem” starred Charles Laughton as a kindly hobo trying his best to get arrested and tossed into a warm jail cell. Incarceration is more pleasant than a harsh New York winter on a park bench. As with most O. Henry tales, there’s a twist to this one too…Marilyn Monroe is featured (about the ten minute mark), albeit for a minute and a half. Watch below.
A BIG thank you for all your support and wonderful comments throughout the past year…
Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and successful 2012 to you all!
Please…drive carefully and stay safe 🙂
While my book on Olive Borden goes into detail about one of Hollywood’s most bizarre cases of mistaken identity, for those of you who know nothing about this fascinating story, have a read of the following blog post from my friend and fellow author, Michael Ankerich. He provided the photos of Sybil Tinkle for my book and he’s been a longtime supporter of all things Ollie B 🙂
Olive Borden is NOT Sybil Tinkle Article
