About This Item

Santa Monica, CA: HBO, 1992. Shooting script for the 1992 television film, with lines and phrases highlighted in yellow throughout. Included with the script are three separate sets of color revision pages (blue, pink, and yellow), dated between 2/7/92 and 2/11/92.

Based on the true story of Joseph McCarthy's chief council Roy Cohn, who acted as one of the head proponents of the Senate investigations of suspected communists and homosexuals in the 1950s, and who later served as Donald Trump's mentor and personal lawyer. The film, which largely depicts Cohn in a deservedly critical light, tracks his troubled childhood, rise to power, closeted homosexuality, and eventual death in 1986 from AIDS.

Shot on location in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
