Hondo (Original screenplay for the 1953 film)

Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1953. Final script for the 1953 film. Based on the short story "the Gift of Cochise" by Louis L'Amour, published in Collier's Magazine on July 5, 1952. Copy belonging to actor Tom Irish, with his name to the front wrapper and his holograph notations throughout. Though easily one of John Wayne's best performances, "Hondo" was virtually unviewable until the early 1990s due to a conflict within the Wayne estate. Geraldine Page, in her film debut, received an Academy Award nomination for her role as the Wayne's love interest, and the film was nominated for a second Academy Award for L'Amour's writing as well. Shot in the briefly-popular stereoscopic 3D technique that was invented in late 1952, in which two cameras are placed slightly apart from each other for filming and two projectors are used to screen the film while the audience wears 3D glasses. As opposed to widely-used gimmicks like objects coming at the camera, director John Farrow wished to use the format to more evocatively portray the depth of the Mexican desert. Set at a remote ranch in the Arizona Territory, shot on location in Mexico, Arizona, and Utah. Orange titled wrappers. Title page present, dated March 12, 1953, with credits for screenwriter James Edward Grant, and author Louis L'Amour. 104 leaves, with last page of text numbered 100. Mechanically reproduced.

The Jazz Singer (Original poster for the 1927 film)

By Crosland, Alan (director); Samson Raphaelson (play); Alfred A. Cohn, Jack Jarmuth (screenwriters); Al Jolson, May McAvoy (starring)

Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1927. Vintage poster for the landmark 1927 film. With a printed blank advertising twice daily showings at the Fox Locust Theatre in Philadelphia. A film whose impact on the art is almost impossible to overestimate. Although short films had experimented with sound throughout the decade, and Warner Brothers had debuted its Vitaphone process featuring synchronized instrumental scores the previous year, "The Jazz Singer" was the first feature film with both a synchronized recorded score and lip-synchronized singing and dialogue. It was, however, the first sound film to become a cultural sensation, proving the commercial viability of feature length talkies, and effectively signaling the end of the silent era. At the first Oscars, producer Daryl F. Zanuck received an Honorary Academy Award and the film was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay, though it was declared ineligible to compete for Best Picture in fairness to the nominated silent films. Image 10 x 18 inches (25 x 46 cm), on heavy weight cardboard as issued. Blank 10 x 2.5 (25 x 6 cm), detached. Very Good only, with faint dampstaining, slight bowing, and staining to the edges. In a non-archival, Very Good plus wood frame measuring 11.5 x 22 inches (29 x 56 cm). Unexamined out of frame. National Film Registry. Hirschhorn, The Hollywood Musical.

The Life of Emile Zola [Zola] (Original screenplay for the 1937 film)

By Dieterle, William (director); Norman Reilly Raine, Heinz Herald, Geza Herczeg (screenwriters); Paul Muni, Gale Sondergaard, Joseph Schildkraut, Gloria Holden (starring)

Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1937. Revised Final Draft script for the 1937 film, "The Life of Emile Zola," here under the working title, "Zola." Winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1938. Based loosely on Matthew Johnson's 1928 biography of Emile Zola, the French muckraking author who attempted to help clear Army captain Alfred Dreyfus. The film represents Zola's involvement in the Dreyfus affair, starring Paul Muni as Zola, Gale Sondergaard as Lucie Dreyfus, and Joseph Schildkraut as Alfred Dreyfus. Sar Paul Muni's second biographical film for Warner Brothers, the first being "The Story of Louis Pasteur" (1936), and arguably the better of the two. He would reprise his role in a 60-minute radio adaptation in 1939 for the Lux Radio Theater. While contemporary reviews of the film were unanimous in their praise, it notably excluded any mention that Dreyfus was Jewish, even though anti-Semitism is generally thought to have played a large role in the condemnation of the officer. It is believed that this omission was intentional, and a reflection of Hollywood's tenuous desire to not upset the young Nazi German government at the time. Set in Paris in the late 19th century. Winner of three Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and the first film to receive ten Academy Award nominations. Orange titled wrappers, noted as REV. FINAL on the front wrapper, rubber stamped copy No. 87. Distribution page present, dated 3/16/37 with receipt removed. Title page present, with credits for story writers Heinz Herald and Geza Herczeg, and screenwriter Norman Reilly Raine. 184 leaves, with last page of text numbered 172. Mimeograph, with blue revision pages throughout, dated 3/17/37 and 3/24/37. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Very Good, bound with two gold brads. National Film Registry.

Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1938. Draft script for the 1938 film.

Named for Irving Berlin's 1911 hit, this film is the story of a young who shames his family by pursuing a career in jazz rather than "serious" music. The film retells the history of jazz music from its start to the rise of ragtime, to the acceptance of swing music as its own art form. Winner of an Academy Award and nominated for an additional five. Blue titled wrappers. Title page present, dated 1938, with credits for composer Irving Berlin, director Henry King, producer Harry Joe Brown, and screenwriters Kathryn Scola, Lamar Trotti, and Richard Sherman. 174 leaves, with last page of text numbered 172.
