    Jilly Rizzo's Personal Bound Copy of Dirty Dingus Magee Script. Frank Sinatra's right-hand man for 35 years, Jilly Rizzo, was ever-present in the studio and on location whenever his pally was making a motion picture. After completing the shoot for the satirical Western Dirty Dingus Magee in 1970, Sinatra "retired" from films, then reluctantly returned to the screen a decade later in the grisly thriller The First Deadly Sin. This unique Dirty Dingus Magee presentation copy of the final draft script, 110 pages, was bound for Jilly Rizzo by Frank Sinatra and the California Bookbinding Co. on Selma Avenue in Hollywood. This script, beautifully bound in burgundy material, with the title and the name "Jilly Rizzo" embossed in gold lettering on the front cover and spine, and housed in a matching slipcase, was in the possession of Rizzo from 1970 until his death in 1992, when it became part of his estate archive. Fine condition with minor wear on the slipcase. From the Jilly Rizzo Estate Archive. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from William Rizzo.
