        The Wicker Man (Post Production Script, September 1973)

      London: Pinewood Studios, 1973. Cutting and Continuity script for the 1973 film, "The Wicker Man," directed and written for the screen by Robin Hardy and starring Edward Woodward and Christopher Lee. An important and rare document that details a now-classic film that from the beginning experienced serious complications. The original film negatives were mistakenly destroyed, followed by years of spurious and unauthorized editing by various distributors (the film did not even screen in the US until 1975). Even today's "director's cut" is only roughly reconstructed from various existing prints, with a relatively long discourse regarding the origins of his island's culture and fruit by Lee's character, Lord Summerisle, still completely missing. This continuity represents the film's original, unexpurgated edit. The front wrapper reads "Printed in London / September 1973," and the film debuted in England in December of that same year, making this likely one of the earliest printed continuities, if not the first. Laid in is a cast and credits list that notes a running time of 86 minutes (contrasted with the most recent reconstruction, which runs 100 minutes). Green card wrappers, with credits on the title page for director-screenwriter Hardy and producer Peter Snell. 192 pages, long sheets, prong binding at the top edge. Very Good or better condition overall.

        An Archive of 8 letters to the writer and editor Robie Macauley, including one from 1948 and 7 from 1972-3, when Macauley was acting as fiction editor of "Playboy" magazine

      1973 - 1 vols. Various sizes. A V.S. Pritchett Archive. In the early letter, Pritchett responds to Macauley's praise for "The Living Novel" with comments on the satisfactions of the writer, the paper shortage in Britainb and a brief assessment of his own capacities: "I have always been a better story writer than a novelist, though, rather defiantly, I am writing a novel now." The bulk of the file concerns the work which Pritchett published in Playboy Magazine. He seems pleased at gaining an American audience, complaining that The New Yorker "always turns down my best things?" Refers to his Life of Balzac; discusses John Collier, the Nobel Prize, students, etc. At one point, while a visiting professor at Smith College, Pritchett notes that "For the first time in my experience of writing classes, I notice that American students are turning to comedy - - - a good sign in a nasty world." A fine collection of letters from one of the most underappreciated writers of the modern age. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

"What I am ultimately concerned with here... is that destruction of values by scientific error which has increasingly come to seem to me the great tragedy of our time - a tragedy, because the values which scientific error tends to dethrone are the indispensable foundation of all our civilization, including the very scientific efforts which have turned against them." - from Introduction. Moderate age-toning to endpapers. Quarter-inch incidental mark to margin of page four, otherwise very clean, bright and unmarked with negligible wear. A superb copy. Machlup B-15. . Fine. 1973.
