Selected for the library collection for their significance in a film genre or in a director's or performer's career, about 300 scripts representing 247 film and television titles are annotated in this 3-section catalog. Alphabetically-arranged entries for feature film scripts include (1) a description of manuscript form, cover or scripts content leaf, script format, and special features; (2) comments providing details about script revision pages and annotations; and (3) identification of basic credits for the associated released film. Entries for unproduced scripts provide a description, a lengthy plot summary, comments about why the project never materialized, and, for literary adaptations or remakes, how the unproduced script differs from the original. Television scripts are described in the same manner as feature films, comments providing the network, airing date, and minimal story information. Directors represented include John Ford, Ernst Lubitsch, Elia Kazan, Billy Wilder, John Huston, George Cukor, Alfred Hitchcock, Robert Altman, and Preston Sturges, Francis Ford Coppola, Nunnally Johnson, Dudley Nichols, Ben Hecht, Sam Raphaelson, and Phillip Dunne. Scripts are listed for films dating from 1925 through 1980, including Citizen Kane, Chinatown, Fellini's Casanova, Harvey, The Philadelphia Story, and Patton. (LMM)
