Cohan, George M.
NEW MATERIAL CONFIDENTIAL SERVICE [wrapper title]
[ Los Angeles: Paramount Studio], 1932. [3],57,[1],65 leaves. Quarto. Mimeographed typescript, printed on rectos only. Stapled in stencil printed wrappers. Some edge discolorations and creasing to wrappers, upper wrapper partly detached from staples, prefatory leaf shows some light stains, a few corners creased, faint tide-mark early and late, but a good copy. A privileged script of Cohan's new play, prepared "To be discussed at the Production Staff Meeting Tuesday, June 21, 1932." A prefatory leaf introduces the play and gives context to the present script: the 1932 film, THE PHANTOM PRESIDENT, with Cohan in the lead, was then in production and Paramount was investigating the possibility of optioning this play, "which Mr. Cohan has been doing in tryouts on the road and which he intends to produce in New York in the fall." Unfortunately, the play did not enjoy much success on the road or in New York, the film never came to fruition, and OCLC/Worldcat records no separate publication of the play under this title.
Bookseller: William Reese Company - Literature, ABAA [New Haven, CT, U.S.A.]
