About This Item

Santa Monica: Barry Oringer Productions, 1971. Archive of two First Draft scripts and a Revised Draft script for the 1972 British television film, belonging to screenwriter Barry Oringer, two in his production company wrappers, and all three with annotations throughout. The film aired on ABC on January 15, 1972, and was theatrically released in Europe.

The first First Draft script, dated April 12, 1971, is an internally duplicated copy on green paper, made during production with copied holes on all pages except the title page, with annotations in manuscript pencil and ink, and copied annotations throughout. The second First Draft script, dated April 25, 1971, is on blue paper with three ribbon copy typescript pages on onionskin, pages 6, 7, and 30, with annotations in manuscript pencil throughout and a few copied annotations. The Revised Draft script, dated May 28, 1971, has two ribbon copy typescript pages on green paper, pages 19A and 19B, and copious annotations in manuscript pencil throughout.

Bette Davis is Madame Sin, a sinister villain hiding in a Scottish castle, intent on world domination, who kidnaps ex-CIA agent Anthony Lawrence, played by Robert Wagner, forcing him to help her hijack a Polaris submarine to attain a secret nuclear weapon. One of many films cashing on the popularity of the then-new James Bond films, originally intended as a television pilot but released as a feature film.

Shot on location in Berkshire and Piccadilly in London, and Argyll and Bute in Scotland.
