About This Item

N.p.: N.p., 1968. Revised Draft script for the 1968 film. Copy belonging to production manager Mickey Delamar, with his name in holograph ink to the front wrapper and his holograph annotations throughout. Laid in with the screenplay are several promotional materials for the film, including two programs, an edition of The Daily Cinema magazine featuring a cover story on "Mayerling," and a small flyer advertising a press showing of the film at Leicester Square.

Delamar worked as a producer, production manager, and assistant director on over 30 films, and was active in the film industry for four decades. His credits include Julien Duvivier's "Anna Karenina" (1948), Charlie Chaplin's "A King in New York" (1957), and Francois Truffaut's "Fahrenheit 451" (1966).

Based on the 1930 novel by Claude Anet, and the 1967 book by Michael Arnold. A dramatization of the events that led to the murder-suicide of Prince Rudolf of Austria and his lover, Baroness Mary Vetsera, at the Mayerling hunting lodge in 1889.
