Hombre (Original screenplay for the 1967 film, working script)
Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1965. Revised Draft script for the 1967 film. Copy belonging to an uncredited member of production, with annotations throughout in holograph ink. One of the great Westerns, and one that epitomizes the revisionist trend sparked by Elmore Leonard's early novels of the 1950s and 1960s. Newman plays a white man who was raised by the Apaches, and has since had to straddle two worlds, feeling truly comfortable in neither. While riding a stagecoach, he is subject to the racial bias of banker Fredric March and March's snooty wife Barbara Rush. In truth, March is an embezzler, a fact that comes out when the coach is held up by murderous bandit-chief Richard Boone. When the passengers fight back, Boone takes Rush as a hostage. Newman proves himself the bravest of the passengers, systematically and intelligently outwitting the bandits one by one, invoking Leonard's brilliant "white flag" scenario from the novel in the process. Shot on location in Arizona. Cream titled wrappers, noted as REVISED SCREENPLAY on the front wrapper, dated June 29, 1965. Title page present, dated June 29, 1965, noted as Revised Screenplay, with credits for screenwriters Ravetch and Frank. 133 leaves, with last page of text numbered 131.
