HACKENSMID, Alexander. John Steinbeck, The Forgotten Village, New York: Viking, 1941. Hardcover (green-stamped cream cloth), 10 ¼ x 7 1/8 inches, 144 pages, 136 screen-gravure illustrations, dustjacket, with ephemera. Stated second printing before publication.
This book tells the story of a young boy and his family, as modern medicine comes to their Mexican pueblo. The images are stills from a film by the same name, which was written by Steinbeck, directed and produced by Herbert Kline, and co-directed by Alexander Hackensmid, who also was the director of photography. They show the villagers farming, celebrating traditions, and adapting to the new science. Czech-born Alexandr Hackenschmied (1907-2004) created experimental films in his native country before settling in Hollywood at the beginning of World War II. Renaming himself Alexander Hammid, he went on to have a long career making documentary and Imax films. Laid into this copy is an issue of The Book League Review that devotes the cover and first two pages to The Forgotten Village. Endpapers glue stained (as is usual), minor browning to the dustjacket.
