About This Item

Los Angeles: Dan Curtis Productions, 1972. Two Revised Draft scripts, "Frankenstein - Part 1" and "Frankenstein - Part 2," for the two part television film "Frankenstein," which aired two, two hour episodes on January 16 and 17, 1973 on ABC's "Wide World of Mystery." Name of uncredited crew member David Dyer and "filming 12-18-72" on top right of each script in holograph ink. With holograph ink annotations to the credits of "Part 1."

Dan Curtis, creator of the popular ABC vampire soap opera "Dark Shadows" (1967-1971), adapted and produced this version of the classic Mary Shelley 1818 novel with "Dark Shadows" screenwriter Sam Hall penning "Part 1" and screenwriter Richard Landau penning "Part 2."

Curtis' "Frankenstein" is a fairly faithful adaptation, shot with television broadcasts cameras, in Curtis' gothic soap opera style, with a memorable performance from Bo Svenson as the monster.

Though well received when aired, it was overshadowed by the Universal Television production "Frankenstein: The True Story," which aired in late 1973 on NBC.

How can something be "used" and new and "first edition from 1831 but also SEALED in the original shrinkwrap"? You should learn what these words mean or include only factual information in your descriptions when selling things.
