Thieves Like Us (novel)
Thieves Like Us was the second and last published novel written by Edward Anderson (1905–1969). It was published in 1937 by Frederick A. Stokes. See: Crime Novels: American Noir of the 1930s and 40s by Robert Polito (editor), The Library of America (1997).
Anderson later sold the movie rights for $500. The first film version (black-and-white) produced by RKO Radio Pictures was called They Live by Night. It had a delayed premiere in 1950. Directed by Nicholas Ray (his first major directorial effort) and starring Farley Granger and Cathy O'Donnell, it was one of the classic noir crime films of its time.
In September 2010, The House Theatre of Chicago produced an original live theater adaption of the script. The production, at Chopin Theatre, ran for four weeks.
