Fast Company

Post by John Betancourt on Tue Jul 14, 2015 5:59 pm

Interesting movie-related development at Wildside Press today. I tracked down the estate of Harry Kurnitz, author of the novel Fast Company (which was turned into the Fast Company mystery movie, launching the series: the other 2 movies are Fast and Loose and Fast and Furious). Wildside Press will be reprinting the book later this year.

For those who haven't seen Fast Company, it's a light, breezy whodunit set against the world of rare books. Think Nick & Nora Charles running a used book store and you'll come close. Highly recommended!

Agreed! Melvyn Douglas does a great job in the co-lead.
