OUR VINES HAVE TENDER GRAPES, 1945, INSCRIBED BY MARGARET O’BRIEN
(O'BRIEN, Margaret) (TRUMBO, Dalton) MARTIN, George Victor. Our Vines Have Tender Grapes. New York, 1945.
First "Motion Picture Edition" of George Victor Martin's debut novel, issued the same year as the lovely 1945 MGM film starring Margaret O'Brien, inscribed by her on "The Characters" page listing her and other actors, "To J— Sincerely Margaret O'Brien" with her bold flourish. The film's screenplay by Dalton Trumbo, soon to be blacklisted and imprisoned, stands out as "the last film to bear his name" until Spartacus and Exodus in 1960. $450.
