Condition: See description

Culver City: Selznick International Studio, 1947. Four items, as described below. Quarto and large quarto. Mimeographed typescripts, printed on rectos only, two items bradbound in studio stencil-printed wrappers, three items stapled, as issued. One wrapper detached from top brad, otherwise fine. A group of items relating to the 1948 Selznick film adaptation of Nathan's 1940 novel, directed by William Dieterle, starring Jennifer Jones, Joseph Cotton, Lillian Gish, Ethel Barrymore, Henry Hull, et al. Final credits for the screenplay included Leonardo Bercovici (adaptation), Paul Osborn, and Peter Berneis, with uncredited contributions by Selznick and Ben Hecht. Present here are: a draft of the screenplay attributed to solely to Berneis, [1],152 leaves, dated 24 January 1947 (denoted "Final Shooting Script"); a draft of the screenplay credited solely to Osborn, [1],120 leaves, dated 16 June 1947 (rerun 24 June 1947); a 2pp. synopsis from the Director of Publicity (undated, two copies); and finally, a Combined 16mm Continuity script of much later vintage, dated 16 May 1961 and a Dialogue Cutting Continuity for the trailer (5 leaves, 11 Jan. 1949). A cursory comparison of the two drafts of the screenplay reveals substantial differences, even apart from the considerable variation in length.
