LOL! I never would have thought to see a cover like this this novel. When was this edition put out?

A remember this scene from the novel. It was just about the only thing that didn't make it into the Bogart version.

I've heard that there were two earlier film versions, one with Bette Davis, but that neither was very good. It'd be fun to track them down anyway someday.

i have to wonder, what ws the artist thinking...well alright its
Obvious what was running through his mind, but, the fact that the publishers allowed this is still Surprising me.

I just can not blend this cover with Mary Astor in my memory banks!
