His dazzling career has included the roles of power agent, record-industry mogul, Broadway producer, and billionaire Hollywood studio founder but from the beginning his accomplishments have been shadowed by the ruthlessness with which he has pursued fame, money, and power. With The Operator, Tom King who interviewed Geffen for the book and had unimpeded access to his circle of intimates presents a mesmerizing chronicle of Geffen’s meteoric rise from the mailroom at William Morris, as well as a captivating tour of thirty sizzling years of Hollywood history. Drawing on the recollections of celebrities such as Tom Cruise, Yoko Ono, Warren Beatty, Courtney Love, Paul Simon, and even Cher (whom Geffen nearly married), The Operator transports readers to a world that is as ruthless as it is dazzling, revealing a great American story about success and the bargains made for it."

9 The Shepherd of the Hills Wright, Harold Bell
Branson, Missouri, U.S.A. Shepherd of the Hills Historical Society 1987 0970260903 / 9780970260901 Hard Copy Near Fine No Jacket 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Signed by Actors
The Shepherd of the Hills Historical Society, Branson, Missouri, 1987. Inscribed on the front end page and front fly leaf by 17 actors who were part of The Shepherd of the Hills Outdoor Theatre in Branson, Missouri in 2003. Book is in Near Fine condition. From the publisher: "Originally published in 1907, 'The Shepherd of the Hills' is Harold Bell Wright's most famous work . . . . Wright spins a tale of universal truths across the years to the modern-day reader. His Eden in the Ozarks has a bountiful share of life's enchantments, but is not without its serpents. While Wright rejoices in the triumphs, grace, and dignity of his characters, he has not naively created a pastoral fantasyland where the pure at heart are spared life's struggles and pains. Refusing to yield to the oft-indulged temptation of painting for the reader the simple life of country innocents, Wright forthrightly shows the passions and the life-and-death struggles that go on even in the fairest of environments that man invades." Gift wrap and gift card available.The shepherd, an elderly, mysterious, learned man, escapes the buzzing restlessness of the city to live in the backwoods neighborhood of Mutton Hollow in the Ozark hills. There he encounters Jim Lane, Grant Matthews, Sammy, Young Matt, and other residents of the village, and gradually learns to find a peace about the losses he has borne and has yet to bear. Through the shepherd and those around him, Wright assembles here a gentle and utterly masterful commentary on strength and weakness, failure and success, tranquility and turmoil, and punishment and absolution. This tale of life in the Ozarks continues to draw thousands of devotees to outdoor performances in Branson, Missouri, where visitors can also see the cabin where the real Old Matt and Aunt Mollie lived." The book, originally published in 1907, was made into a movie of the same name in 1941 with a cast including John Wayne, Betty Field, Sammy Lane, Harry Carey, Beulah Bondi, Marjorie Main, and Ward Bond.
