Publisher's Blurb: "There is hardly a day in our business routine which does not bring its inquiry as to the motion picture rights of some one or more of the S & S novels. You see, there are very few scenario writers who are able to produce an acceptable fim play oftener than once a week, and there are very few good writers of that sort of material, so the producer must look to good books for his plots. Therefore, when we tell you that the PICTURE PLAY LIBRARY contains only the best of the novels which have been filmed recently, you will understand how thoroughly good the books must be."
Notes / Commentary: The listing was taken from publisher's catalogs and the dates verified from S&S ledgers stored at Syracuse University.
