Skin Game (Original screenplay for the 1971 film)
Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1971. Revised Final draft script for the 1971 film. Brief notation in holograph pencil, noting the role of "Ginger" to be played by Marianna Hill, on the distribution page (the part ultimately went to Susan Clark). Based on a story by Richard Alan Simmons, this unusual Civil War-era film for 1970s Hollywood is perhaps more in tune with war movies of the 1950s. Con man Quincy (Garner) and his black friend Jason (Gossett) swindle slave owners into buying Jason, who is a free man. The two reap the benefits of the "skin game" sale and share the profit after Jason escapes. Set in Missouri, shot on location in California. Remade in 1974 for CBS-TV as "Sidekicks," starring Larry Hagman and Lou Gossett, Jr. reprising his role. Goldenrod titled wrappers, noted as FINAL on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped copy No. 170, dated January 13, 1971. Distribution page present, with receipt intact. Title page present, dated 1/12/71, with credits for screenwriters Stone and Giler, and producer Harry Keller. 125 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 122.
