Weegee's photos were used on the covers of early No Exit Press books
(reprints of Latimer, Burnett, Whitfield, Brown, Paul Cain etc). Looked real nice.

Weegee had a book of photos, The Naked City. A film producer bought the title to use for the film (directed by Jules Dassin), and later the TV series.

Stanley Kubrick (ex-feature photographer) was a big Weegee fan and had him visit the set of Dr Strangelove. Peter Sellers loved Weegee's accent and used it as the basis for his portrayal of Dr Strangelove.
