Burbank: Warner Brothers, 1979. First Draft Script for the 1982 film, "Creepshow," directed by George A. Romero, written for the screen by Stephen King, and starring King, Hal Holbrook, Ed Harris, Ted Danson, Adrienne Barbeau, Leslie Nielsen, and E.G. Marshall. SIGNED by George Romero on the title page: "Stay scared! / George Romero." This an early draft, with the "Laurel Group" address on the title page. The Laurel Group was sold the film rights by Films Around the World at the point when Romero was picked to direct the film. In one of the most successful genre pairings of the 1980s, horror maestros Romero and King came together to write a five-story B-movie anthology that paid tribute to the great E.C. horror comics of the 1950s. The result was a film that belongs in a category with Mario Bava's 1968 "Danger: Diabolik!" and perhaps a few others, wherein the experience of reading a comic book is vibrantly translated to the screen. Another often-ignored fact is this an original screenplay by King, with only two of the five tales in the anthology ("Weeds" and "The Crate") based on short stories previously written by King. Black vinyl studio wrappers, stamped in gilt on the front wrapper. Title page present, with a date of 1979 (3 years prior to the film's release) and a credit for screenwriter King. Tiny holograph ink notation of a first name ("Karen") and a couple of phone numbers at the top of same, indicating that this was probably a working reference copy. 142 leaves, mechanically reproduced, white stock. Pages and wrapper Near Fine, bound with two gold screw brads. In a custom quarter leather clamshell box.
