Red marks on bottom edge. Some page discoloration. Front board as some weakness. Norman Katkov was born on July 26, 1918 in Ukraine. He is known for his work on It Happened to Jane, Blood & Orchids and Fire. Norman Katkov wrote many of the best scripts for one of the best television shows of the sixties: Ben Casey. Ben Casey told intense, often despairing stories of illnesses both physical and mental - maladies, one might say, that afflicted mankind at large. Dark and brooding, Casey always seemed to take place at three in the morning: its hospital corridors were always empty, a window was rarely to be glimpsed, and the shadowy lighting crossing the barren walls edged into the territory of German expressionism. The show took on the personality of its star - snarling, unsympathetic, rude - and because viewers, especially female ones, responded enthusiastically to Edwards' tough love, Ben Casey was allowed to evolve into a rare oasis of melancholia within the sunniness of TV's Camelot era. But Katkov enjoyed a measure of commercial success relatively late in life with Blood and Orchids, a 1983 bestseller that fictionalized the Massie case, a 1931 incident of rape and murder in Hawaii that turned into a racial scandal. Three years later, a miniseries version starring Kris Kristofferson appeared on CBS. In February 1986, CBS-TV aired a four-hour miniseries produced by Lorimar Productions titled Blood & Orchids, written for television by Norman Katkov, who based his teleplay on his own novel of the same title. Katkov said that he based his novel on the Massie Affair. Katkov changed all the names of the principal characters.T he Massie Trial for what was known as the Massie Affair, was a 1932 criminal trial that took place in Honolulu, Hawaii. Grace Hubbard Fortescue, along with several accomplices, was charged with murder in the death of well known local prizefighter Joseph Kahahawai. Fortescue was the mother of Thalia Massie, who had brought charges that Kahahawai was one of a group of men that had raped her. Grace Hubbard Fortescue, née Grace Hubbard Bell, was the granddaughter of Gardiner Greene Hubbard, the first president of the National Geographic Society, and niece of Alexander Graham Bell. Thalia Fortescue married Lieutenant Thomas Massie, a rising United States Navy officer. In 1930, Massie was stationed at Pearl Harbor. On September 12, 1931, the couple attended a Navy event at the Ala Wai Inn, a Waikiki nightclub. Thalia had another argument which ended with her storming out. Massie eventually tried to call his wife to make sure she had arrived safely-after several calls Thalia finally answered, but in a state of shock. Massie returned home and heard from Thalia that while walking home she had been assaulted and raped by several Hawaiian men. Over Thalia's objections, Massie immediately phoned the police, who arrived to take her statement. Thalia described the assailants as "locals", but gave police a license plate number. Within hours the police arrested Horace Ida. Ida was not entirely surprised at first, as only a few hours earlier he had been involved in a near collision while driving his sister's car. Although there was no damage, an argument broke out with the other driver and one of his friends, boxer Joseph Kahahawai, slugged the woman. Upon his arrival at the police station, the charges with the altercation were never brought up-instead he found to his dismay that he was being charged with rape. In stories printed as the case developed, the local newspapers referred to the men as "thugs", "degenerates" and "fiends", while Thalia was described as "a white woman of refinement and culture". In court the case quickly fell apart. After a three-week trial and lengthy jury deliberation, the jurors declared themselves deadlocked and a mistrial was declared. Grace Fortescue was not willing to wait for another trial; she first arranged for the kidnapping and vicious beating of Horace Ida. Next, she talked Thomas Massie into kidnapping Joseph Kahahawai, the darkest skinned of the five defendants, with the help of two Navy enlisted men-Albert O. Jones and Edward J. Lord. Massie and the two Navy men attempted to beat a confession out of him-eventually, one of the group of four shot Kahahawai. Fortescue herself admitted to the crime. Meanwhile, the tensions in Hawaii were ready to erupt into race riots. Clarence Darrow, perhaps the most famous lawyer of his era, decided to take on the defense., The Bodley Head
