Par Darryl Beckmann
Did you know that Claude (Alexander) Conlin rubbed elbows with such notables as Harold Lloyd, Clara Bow and Margaret Sullavan ? That he had as many wives as Mickey Rooney ? Or how about the fact that he loaned Houdini $500 and he was never paid back ? Read all about these facts and more in The Life and Times of Alexander – The Man Who Knows.
This personal scrapbook is filled with photos (many published for the first time) from Alexander’s own personal photo album and scrapbooks including many color plates of his publicity material.
With the Conlin family’s blessing, Darryl Beckmann spent many hours with Alexander’s san John, the Nartell twins, and many experts on the life of Alexander, who share amusing stories, news clippings and unknown facts about THE MAN WHO KNOWS.
As an added bonus, Alexander’s book, The Life and Mysteries of the Celebrated Dr. « Q » is included as part of this mammoth volume !
Each book is numbered from a Limited Edition printrun of 1000 copies.
Pages: 360 – 8.5″ x 11″ – Hardcover with dustjacket.
