    Large Archive of Mark Hellinger's Published and Unpublished Short Stories. Hundreds upon hundreds of Mark Hellinger original short stories, many annotated, occupy this vast archive (three large boxfuls). Many in the lot were published, many were not. The archive is thorough, as was Hellinger's style, each story filed away with related notes, documents and correspondence. One letter stands out: addressed to Al Kaufman of Selznick Studios, the 1936 typed correspondence refers to Mr. Kaufman's interest in Hellinger's short story The World Moves On (the original title to The Roaring Twenties). Hellinger outlines the story idea and insists that George Raft play the lead. A fascinating bit of background to what would be Hellinger's first real taste of Hollywood success. Though most of the pages have yellowed with time, the archive is in overall Very Good condition, its never-before-seen contents waiting to be treasured. From the Mark Hellinger Archive.
