McCoy in a Magazine…


A great article in a NY Times fashion magazine about Esther McCoy appeared a few weeks ago…
Surprisingly no mention of McCoy’s great film Weegee in Hollywood (1950, 7 min.).

“She reported on slum clearances and the crisis in low-cost housing and wrote book reviews and a trilogy of detective novels. When her friend Jean Evans, a writer for New York PM Magazine, [PM!?!?], married the future director Nicholas Ray in 1936, McCoy served as a witness. With Ray, McCoy collaborated on a screenplay about troubled youth that was never finished.” p. 60

Her archives are here (at the Smithsonian, Archives of American Art)
Surprisingly no mention of Weegee in Hollywood in the Archives of American Art webpages…
