Boston: Atlantic Little-Brown, 1970. Paperback. Uncorrected Proof. This is the third collection of film reviews by the longtime movie critic of The New Yorker. It is an uncommon advance copy as the proof carries the working title of The Great Bastard Cross-fertilized Super-art," but was published as "Going Steady." A near fine copy with light fading to the spine and a label shadow on the lower edge. The proof differs from the published version in the title and all the places the title is listed, including in the "introduction" which became the "Forward" in the book. Also, an untitled section in the proof became "Intentions" in the finished book.
