Light discolorations in extreme margins of first and last leaves and at edges, large chip from lower spine corner of lower wrapper, near fine in very good wrappers.

This is often considered a first-rate adaptation of McCullers’ book. This 1968 film starred Alan Arkin, Sondra Locke, and featured an early and haunting performance by Cicely Tyson.
