“People who work in the daytime are suckers,” he once said. Before the publication of his first book, “Naked City,” made him famous in 1945, he lived in a cheap room near police headquarters and was said to be so accustomed to working on the run that he once developed a picture of a prizefight in a subway motorman’s cab while rushing back to a newspaper office.

"Viewing News Report Of A Yankee Game, Times Square." Oct. 6, 1943

And then there was the NUDIE MOVIE:
The Imp-Probable Mr. Wee Gee

Impprobablemr"Sherman Price directed this nudie comedy starring famed crime photographer Weegee, who was later the basis for several films including The Public Eye (1992). With a voice dubbed by Reuben Guberman, Weegee falls in love with a department-store mannequin and tracks her to Europe, where he meets peril atop the Eiffel Tower and a buxom ghost in London. The notion of a nudie comedy starring a photographer best known for bloody photos of gruesome death may be odd, but the film is entertaining enough for fans of the genre to enjoy". ~ Robert Firsching, All Movie Guide
