Bonomo, Joe, 1901-1978  
The Strongman: A True Life. Pictorial Autobiography of the Hercules of the Screen, Joe Bonomo

Publisher: [NY, Bonomo Studios, 1968].
352 p., illus., ports.; 28 cm. "The son of a Coney Island candy maker and the winner of a Modern Apollo contest, wiry, little Joe Bonomo parlayed his physical culture fame into a lucrative film career as a stunt performer and, at Universal, star of silent serials. The grand prize in the Apollo contest was a 1,000-dollar purse and a screen role opposite celebrity/star Hope Hampton in A Light in the Dark. Joe also doubled Hampton and was well on his way to stardom in such action serials as The Great Circus Mystery, in which he prevented a plot by Hindu agents to steal an invaluable ruby, and The Chinatown Mystery (1928), as a secret service agent battling the mysterious Sphinx. Bonomo made the transition to talkies but a heavy Brooklyn accent prevented him from playing Anthony opposite Claudette Colbert's Cleopatra (1932) and the sign was on the wall. After performing stunts and playing bit parts in such near-legendary horror films as The Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932) and Island of Lost Souls (1933), Bonomo returned to the family's well-established saltwater taffy business and later ventured into publishing, an equally thriving venture that culminated with his 1968 autobiography, The Strongman."

Tucker, Sophie, 1884-1966.  
Some of These Days. The Autobiography of Sophie Tucker.

Publisher: Copyright 1945 [N.Y., Doubleday, Doran].
4 p.l., 309 p., photographs as endpapers. Appears to be published by the author for promotional distribution: “written in collaboration with Dorothy Giles.” This is a well-written, engaging show-business memoir. Sophie Tucker was born in Russia as her mother was travelling to join her husband in Boston. The description of Jewish immigrant life in Boston and Hartford, Connecticut, and the breaking with tradition by leaving her husband and baby to work on her own, give the book interest beyond the show-business stories. This copy is inscribed and dated 1953. Dj shelfworn; VG. Stock#23239.
