Along with the full-length screen treatments On the Make (which became the movie Mr. Dynamite, 1935) and The Kiss-Off (the basis for City Streets, starring Sylvia Sydney and Gary Cooper, 1931), this collection includes never before and rarely published stories that explore failed romance, courage in the face of uncertainty, hypocrisy, and crass opportunism. Collected and edited by Hammett's granddaughter, Julie Rivett, and noted Hammett scholar and biographer Richard Layman, The Hunter and Other Stories is a trove of priceless literary gems from an American master storyteller. Donna Postel reads the introduction, commentaries, and afterword; Ray Chase reads the sections Crime and Screen Stories and the appendix; Brian Holsopple reads the section Men; and Stephen Bowlby reads the section Men and Women., Detective and mystery stories, American., Detective and mystery stories., Digital content provided by hoopla., Electronic books., FIC MYSTERY HAMMETT, FIC022010FIC029000FIC030000, FICTION / Mystery & Detective / Hard-Boiled, FICTION / Short Stories (single author), FICTION / Thrillers / Suspense, Hammett, Dashiell,1894-1961,author., Hammett, Dashiell,1894-1961., Holsopple, Brian.|Narrator, Layman, Richard,1947-, Layman, Richard,1947-editor., MWT11419155, MWT11784370, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., Mystery fiction., New York :The Mysterious Press,c2013., PS3515.A4347H86 2013, Postel, Donna.|Narrator, Read by Ray Chase., Rivett, Julie M., Rivett, Julie M.,editor., Short stories, American., Short stories., Spade, Sam (Fictitious character), The Hunter and Other Stories is a unique literary publication from one of the greatest writers of the 20th century, Dashiell Hammett. This volume includes both new Hammett stories gleaned from his personal archives along with screen treatments long buried in film-industry files. The best of Dashiell Hammett's unfamiliar treasures have been rescued from deep in these archives: screen stories, unpublished and rarely published fiction, and intriguing unfinished narratives. Hammett is regarded as both a pioneer and master of hard-boiled detective fiction, but these dozen and half stories that explore failed romance, courage in the face of conflict, hypocrisy, and crass opportunism, show him in a different light. The collection also includes two full-length screen treatments. "On the Make" is the basis for the rarely seen 1935 film Mr. Dynamite, starring a corrupt detective who never misses an opportunity to take advantage of his clients rather than help them. "The Kiss-Off" is the basis for City Streets (1931), with Sylvia Sydney and Gary Cooper caught in a romance complicated by racketeering's obligations and temptations. Like the screen stories from Return of The Thin Man, they read as novellas-rich in both story and character. Publication of these new volumes is due to the passion of Julie M. Rivett, Hammett's granddaughter and a well-regarded Hammett scholar, as well as Richard Layman, the author of the first full-length biography of Hammett, Shadow Man, the definitive bibliography, and other works. Rivett and Layman are trustees for Hammett's literary estate and have co-edited two previous Hammett volumes-Selected Letters of Dashiell Hammett and Dashiell Hammett: A Daughter Remembers. The Hunter and Other Stories will appeal to longtime Hammett fans, and introduce a new generation to one of the most influential voices in American fiction., The hunter -- The sign of the potent pills -- The diamond wager -- Action and the Quiz Kid -- Fragments of justice -- A throne for the worm -- Magic -- Faith -- An inch and a half of glory -- Nelson Redline -- Monk and Johnny Fox -- The cure -- Seven pages -- The breech-born -- The lovely strangers -- Week--end -- On the way -- The kiss-off -- Devil's playground -- On the make -- A knife will cut for anybody., The hunter :and other storiesDashiell Hammett., The hunter and other stories, The hunter and other stories /Dashiell Hammett ; edited by Richard Layman and Julie M.
