I AM DOWN TO LESS THAN FIFTY COPIES. ONCE THESE ARE GONE THERE WILL BE NO MORE.

AVAILBLE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 35 YEARS! Leo Gorcey's notorious autobiography, "An Original Dead End Kid Presents Dead End Yells, Wedding Bells, Cockle Shells and Dizzy Spells"is once again in print. This Limited Edition reprint features a new Foreword by Leo B. Gorcey, Jr., an Afterword and in-depth chapter notes by Brandy Gorcey Ziesemer, plus eight pages of new, never before published photos. Printing is limited to one thousand copies, personally signed and numbered by Leo B. Gorcey, Jr. This auction is for #955/1000.

Leo Gorcey self-published his autobiography in 1967. "Dead End Yells" is a hilarious pastiche of movie memories, personal ancedotes, and Gorcey's no-punches-pulled rants against his numerous ex-wives.

The first edition of Leo's book had a tiny print run of just one thousand copies, and is considered one of the rarest of all cinema books. Today, original copies are prized collectors items, selling for $500 to $1,000.

Besides the new bonus material, this reprint is identical to the original printing in every respect. Cloth-bound, 130 pages, hardcover with dustjacket. Published by Anthony Restorations and the Leo Gorcey Foundation.

Books will ship Media Mail/Insured for a flat rate of $4.00.
