Can a poor but honest young man still find fortune and happiness in the big city through hard work and strength of character?

Maybe not – but if he’s walked into a $2500-a-week job in an ad agency, paid cash for a big black Cadillac, and surrounded himself with the most luscious hot tunas in L.A., he can have a helluva time trying!

Just an odd cover… body paint, Indian headdress… and that expression on the face of the chick on the left….

You wouldn’t know it from this title (nor from a previous title of his, Where The Boys Are) but Swarthout later wrote the novel on which the John Wayne film The Shootist is based.
