When disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein arrived at a New York police station to be charged with rape and sex abuse, he was seen clutching three books.
Two have been identified as non-fiction hardbacks, while the third appears to be leather-bound and could be a notebook or journal.
Weinstein was holding Richard Schickel's 2005 biography of Elia Kazan, a director who was posthumously accused of sexual assault by British actress Carol Drinkwater.
Kazan, who died in 2003, directed the Oscar-winning film adaption of A Streetcar Named Desire, which was released in 1951 and starred Marlon Brando.
He also directed the premiere stage production of Arthur Miller's the Death of a Salesman.
Kazan, who was born in 1909 to Greek parents in Istanbul, Turkey, is said to have dominated both theatre and film in the US in the 1950s.
Schickel's biography portrays Kazan, who was married three times, as a womaniser who had affairs with leading ladies including Marilyn Monroe.
Ms Drinkwater, who appeared in films including A Clockwork Orange and Father, told the Guardian in 2017 that Kazan had sexually assaulted her during an audition for his 1973 adaptation of The Last Tycoon.
She said the director was in his 60s and she was in her 20s when he targeted her.
Ms Drinkwater said: "He came in, threw me back on the sofa and started pulling at my clothes, forcibly trying to have sex with me."
The second of Weinstein's non-fiction hardbacks was titled "Something Wonderful: Rodgers and Hammerstein's Broadway Revolution", which was published last month.
Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II are credited with pioneering a new art form in the shape of "the serious musical play".
Their classic Broadway musicals include Oklahoma!, Carousel, South Pacific, the King and I and The Sound of Music.
The pair are celebrated for initiating the "golden age" of musical theatre throughout the 1940s and 1950s.
Macmillan Publishers, who published Todd S Purdum's "Something Wonderful", describe Rodgers and Hammerstein as "cultural powerhouses whose works came to define post-war America on stage, screen, television and radio".
More than 75 women have made allegations against Weinstein, but many of the alleged encounters happened too long ago for any prosecution.
Weinstein denies any allegations of non-consensual sex.
New York police said Weinstein was arrested on Friday and charged with rape, a criminal sex act, sex abuse and sexual misconducts for incidents involving two separate women.
The shamed movie producer, once described as "god" by the Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep, was flanked by two police officers as he arrived at a courthouse.
His lawyer Benjamin Brafman said: "(Weinstein) has always maintained any sexual activity he entered into was consensual.

"Many of these allegations are long overdue – having been made about events alleged to have occurred many years ago.
"They were not reported to the police at the time."
