Guys and dolls by Joseph L Mankiewicz( visu )
2 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 1,235 libraries worldwide
Times Square is all a bustle with petty crooks, lazy cops, and especially, gamblers. Gamblers are everywhere, but Nathan Detroit--who maintains the "Oldest Established Permanent Floating Crap Game in New York"--Is short the $1000 he needs to secure a site for a fleet of big players coming into town. Nathan's other problem is his burlesque showgirl fiancée, Miss Adelaide. Her fourteen-year long engagement and Nathan's failure to give up the gambling racket as he promised have given her a permanent, psychosomatic cold. When Sky Masterson, with a reputation as a fast and loose bettor, arrives in New York Nathan devises a plan. Nathan bets Sky that Sky won't be able to convince Sergeant Sarah Brown, local Salvation Army Sergeant and goody two shoes extraordinaire, to go to Havana for dinner. Sky only has 24 hours to succeed or sacrifice the cash. What he doesn't count on is losing his heart as well. Thus, the die is cast, the fates engaged, as songs, dance, and old-fashioned gambling good fun ensue

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 332 libraries worldwide
Marlon Riggs brings his landmark study of prejudice and perception begun in Ethnic Notions into the Television Age and looks at over forty years of race relations through the lens of prime time entertainment with an analysis of the portrayal of African-Americans on American television from 1948-1988. He argues that earlier images were outright racist, and that later images have been overly biased towards prosperous blacks. This Peabody Award winning documentary revisits popular prime time television shows such as Beulah, The Nat King Cole Show, Julia, I Spy, Good Times and Roots. Actors Esther Rolle, Diahann Carroll and Tim Reid along with Hollywood producers Norman Lear, Steven Bochco and David Wolper reveal how bitter racial conflict was absorbed by the non-controversial format of the prime time series

In television Leonard has made his greatest contribution to popular entertainment. Occasionally as actor, more often as writer, but mainly - and resoundingly - as producer and director, his credits include some of the most successful and beloved TV series of our time, among them The Danny Thomas Show, The Andy Griffith Show, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C., and I Spy. Leonard's account of how these series were created and sustained is in many ways the heart of his memoir
