About This Item

N.p.: N.p., 1962. Draft script for the 1962 film. With director Luis Buñuel's holograph pencil and ink annotations throughout noting changes and additions to dialogue, and the name of Russian-American director Victor Stoloff in holograph ink on the front of the folder housing the script. Stoloff was associated with Buñuel during Buñuel's brief sojourn in America, and is interviewed in the 2000 documentary "Buñuel in Hollywood."

Included with the script is an English translation of Buñuel's revisions.

An impossibly rare script for Buñuel's masterpiece, and the penultimate film the director made in Mexico. An incisive, eerie, surrealist comedy about a group of bourgeois guests at a dinner party who realize they inexplicably cannot leave the house. Nominated for the Palme d'Or at Cannes.

Set and shot on location in Mexico.

Tall, lacking wrappers and title page, housed in a light blue folder. 94 leaves, with last page of text numbered 94. Mimeograph duplication, rectos only. Pages Near Fine, very lightly foxed to the first leaf, unbound.

Criterion Collection 459. Ebert I. Rosenbaum 1000.
