The hucksters by Jack Conway( Visual )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Hucksters (1947) is a considerably sanitized version of the best-selling novel by Frederic Wakeman.

Deborah Kerr, in her American film debut, plays an English widow Gable falls in love with, and Ava Gardner has one of her first important roles as a nightclub singer who's a former girlfriend of Gable's. In a deliciously flamboyant performance, Sydney Greenstreet tears into the juicy role of a villainous soap tycoon, Gable's major client
