About This Item

Hollywood: Paramount Pictures, 1954. Revised Final Draft script for the 1955 film.

The eighth and final collaboration of James Stewart and Anthony Mann, and the second film to be released in VistaVision. "Dutch" (Stewart) is a professional baseball player and an ex-pilot who fought during WWII who is recalled to service with the US Air Force.

Many speculate that the film was inspired by true-life baseballer and Hall-of-Famer Ted Williams, a WWII veteran who was recalled for service during the Korean War.

Nominated for an Academy Award.

Self wrappers, noted as FINAL WHITE on the front wrapper, printed production No. 11510, dated February 20, 1954, with credits for screenwriters Davies and Lay.

Mechanical duplication, including pages with annotations, and revision pages throughout dated variously between 3/3/54 and 4/21/54. Very Good plus overall, side-stapled.
