New York: Paperback Library, 1971. Paperback Original (1st). Original wraps. 4 1/8 X 7 Inches. 160 PP. Very Good +. Item #524
Based on the original screenplay by George Lucas. The commercial failure of this film was nearly enough to destroy Lucas and any shot he had of making his Flash Gordon Space Adventure known as The Star Wars. Thankfully, American Graffiti came along and turned out to be a hidden gem. The payoff brought enough for Star Wars. Novelization by Ben Bova. Back cover is shot from film starring Robert Duvall. Film was produced by Francis Ford Coppola. A bit of wear at edges. Almost unnoticeable break to spine. A nice copy of a scarce book overall.
