THE THIRD MAN .... SECOND DRAFT SCRIPT [wrapper title]

by Greene, Graham [screenwriter]

Condition: See description


[Np: London Film Productions for Selznick Releasing Organization], 1948. 118 leaves. Quarto. Mimeographed typescript, printed on rectos only. Bradbound in typescript blue wrappers, with small script number stamp. Slight sunning at edges of wrappers, else about fine. A "second draft" of this original screenplay by Greene, with uncredited contributions by Orson Welles (who it is said wrote his own dialogue) and Carol Reed, the director. The English production premiered in the UK on 31 August 1949, and opened in the U.S. in February 1950, with distribution through Selznick Releasing Organization. This script is one of a small number of preproduction scripts prepared for use by the latter group. The cast included Joseph Cotton, Orson Welles, Trevor Howard and Allida Valli, and the film was appreciated in its own time via a number of nominations and awards, and appreciated even more considerably by posterity. Greene published an adaptation of the original treatment in 1950, and in 1968, a form of the final script, with production revisions, was published. One of a relatively small number of duplicate copies from the Selznick Archive. WOBBE D11.
