Made into Movies Vintage Hollywood Cinema Set Of Three Paperbacks Lust for Life, Ben Hur and In Cold Blood

A set of three vintage novels that were made into Oscar winning/nominated films. All three were published between 1959 and 1965.
In “Lust for Life” Vincent Van Gogh is the archetypical tortured artistic genius. His obsession with painting, combined with mental illness, propels him through an unhappy life full of failures and unrewarding relationships. He earns some respect among his fellow painters, especially Paul Gauguin, but he does not get along with them. He only manages to sell one painting in his lifetime. The one constant good in his life is his brother Theo, who is unwavering in his moral and financial support. Irving stone, author, 1963 cardinal giant edition
1956 Oscar award winner Anthony Quinn also starred Kirk Douglas

“In Cold Blood” Two young men are ineffectual individually, but when together become violent criminals. They break into a wealthy farmer's home only to find that there is nearly no money at the home and murder the entire family to avoid identification. Truman Capote’s best seller about the brutal slaying, capture, trial and execution of the two young murderers. 1965 signet books new american library edition
1967, starred Robert Blake, Oscar nominated

During a parade a brick falls down from Judah's house and barely misses the governor. Although Messala knows that they are not guilty he sends Judah to the galleys and throws his mother and sister into prison. But Judah swears to come back and take revenge. Lew Wallace, author, 1959 cardinal giant, pocket book edition
