Behind the Scenes: Rare & Collectible Screenplays

Something Wicked this Way ComesScreenplays and film scripts can be delightful additions to any book collection. There is nothing quite like holding a rare film script that was once held by a director or actor. Because screenplays were made in limited quantities–to be used and shared by movie cast and crew only–their value is found in the scarcity and demand of copies and not necessarily in the preservation of the script. Most scripts are heavily worn from use on the set. Chances are book buyers and film aficionados may be able to find certain scripts from their favorite movies at an affordable price.

Screenplays can also vary by editions and drafts, number of copies, person for whom the script was intended, signatures or notes in the script, additional mementos copied or pasted in pages, popularity or “cult following” of the film, etc.

We’ve created a gallery of some of our rare and collectible screenplays. We invite you to search Biblio for your own favorite script–you never know what may turn up in this treasure box of ephemera!

    We have the script of the movie “Boy on a Dolphin” with Sophia Loren and we were wondering of its value.
