[Four post-production scripts for:] SPELLBOUND

by Hitchcock, Alfred [director], and Ben Hecht [screenwriter]

Condition: See description

[Culver City]: Selznick International Studios, 1961. Four volumes, each foliated in reel format, three quarto, one legal format. Mimeograph typescript, printed on rectos only. First three bradbound in mimeographed wrappers, the latter stapled at top margin. Slight tanning and foxing to a couple wrappers, a few small spots to fore-edge of one item, otherwise very good to fine. A group of post-production scripts for this key Hitchcock film, based on a screenplay by Ben Hecht, which was in turn based on Angus MacPhail's adaptation of a novel, THE HOUSE OF DR. EDWARDES, by Hilary Saunders and John ("Francis Beeding") Palmer. Present here are a Cutting Continuity script (dated 1 November 1945); a Dialogue Continuity script (rerun 31 May 1949); another Cutting Continuity script (rerun 10 June 1949), and a Combined 16mm Continuity script (15 May 1961). Ingrid Bergman and Gregory Peck starred, and Salvador Dali contributed designs to the dream sequences. The film was nominated for six Academy Awards, and won one, for Miklós Rózsa's musical score. While not on the level of preproduction or production scripts, these scripts record in detail (often quite technical detail) the final form of the film.
