THE TRIAL OF RUTH SNYDER AND JUDD GRAY

Another in the series of true crimes which has been preceded by the Lizzie Borden and Bruno Richard Hauptmann cases. An introductory essay which is not only a resumÉ of the case but which offers some interesting analysis of the personalities involved, in an astute and sometimes witty manner. Since his premise is that a commonplace crime is always most sensational in public appeal, and since this crime did occupy more newspaper space than any save that of Thaw's and Hauptmann's -- this may appeal to a large audience. The court records reveal the long detailed questioning which turned the case into that of ""Snyder versus Judd"" and sentenced them both.
