Overview

Rob Wagner's Script was a small, intellectual magazine—perhaps best described as a lesser, West Coast version of The New Yorker—published in Beverly Hills from 1929 to 1947. It was notable for the quality of its articles and essays and the celebrity status of many of its contributors. This anthology gathers together the best of the journal, including short stories by Charles Chaplin, profiles by Jim Tully and Dalton Trumbo, poetry by Jessamyn West, and articles by Upton Sinclair, Agnes de Mille, Sigmund Romberg, Eddie Cantor, and Ben Hecht. Of particular interest are some of the earliest writings of William Saroyan, Louis L'Amour, and Ray Bradbury.
