This is the Story of Chance:

Illus. with photographs of 236 Hollywood screen stars, with their recipes. Gilt-lettered blue cloth. First Edition. Hollywood: Fannie Sniff, 1938.

Irene Dunne’s oyster kabobs, Gracie Allen’s cheesecake, Douglas Fairbanks Jr.’s steak & kidney pie, Clark Gable’s beef barbecue, Marlene Dietrich’s banana nut bread (!), Judy Garland’s kiss pie, and Cary Grant’s crab Louie are all in here, along with many others, lost to history until now. A bit dusty, else near fine.
