Book Description [Los Angeles]: Paramount Pictures, 1945., 1945. Vintage color 11 x 14" color lobby card. Small crease in upper margin, tiny exhibition pinholes, one each in upper and lower margins, trace of dust soiling on verso, otherwise very good or better A rendering in color (the film was a b&w release) of a somewhat uncharacteristic (i.e. stereotypically comedic) action shot of three of the principals in this film dealing with the repercussions of acknowledgement of military heroism in a small community of Paisanos near Santa Cruz. The film was based on a screenplay by Jack Butler, which was in turn based on a collaborative story co- written by John Steinbeck and Jack Wagner, and directed by Irving Pichel, starring Dorothy Lamour, Arturo de Córdova, Mikhail Rasumny, and J. Carrol Naish. Steinbeck and Wagner's original story was nominated for an Academy Award. Bookseller Inventory # WRCLIT 67162

Used Quantity Available: 1

Rating

Book Description [Los Angeles]: Paramount Pictures, 1 November and 7 December 1944., 1944. Two volumes, each foliated in reel/page format as: [1],10,9,7,10,11,10,10,8 leaves. Quarto. Mimeographed typescript, printed on rectos only. Second item stapled at left margin, first formerly stapled. Some corner creases, "Master File Copy" and production number stamps on title leaf of first item, pencil annotations, name and ink file number on title leaf of second. Very good. Two late production states of the script for the 1945 film, based on a story idea by Jack Wagner, cowritten with John Steinbeck, and adapted as a screenplay by Frank Butler. The release dialogue script records a print totaling 51 more feet than the censorship script. Irving Pichel directed, and Dorothy Lamour, J. Carrol Naish and Arturo de Cordova led the cast. Obviously, little apart from Steinbeck's treatment for the film (the Valentine collection included a carbon typescript) may be easily identified as purely Steinbeck's work; however, nothing relating to the script saw lifetime publication so even continuity scripts such as these take on some significance for Steinbeck scholars.
