NORTH BY NORTHWEST
[Hollywood]: Loew's / [MGM], 1958. 1-116,124-129 leaves. Quarto. Mimeograph typescript, printed on rectos only of pale green and salmon stock. Bradbound in studio wrappers. Pencil ownership inscription and a few ink annotations on upper wrapper, a few early leaves with ink revisions, else very good. An incomplete copy of a revised draft of this original screenplay, with dated revises spanning the period above. This copy belonged to cast member Pat[rick] McVey, who played Sergeant Flamm. The draft is complete up until page 8 of scene 124, and then resumes briefly to include scenes 128 and part of 129 -- McVey's character appears in scene 127 and he evidently extracted the leaves for his scene, and then, having made his appearance, received no further additions to the script (i.e. scenes 129 through 281). One of Hitchcock's iconic films, NORTH BY NORTHWEST starred Cary Grant, Eve Marie Saint, James Mason, Leo G. Carroll, et al. Lehman was nominated for an Oscar for his script. Screenplays for Hitchcock's major films are generally scarce -- this substantial fragment is not without merit.
