Of Human Bondage (Original screenplay for the 1946 film, script editor's copy)
Warner Brothers, Burbank, CA 1944 - Second Revised Final draft script for the 1946 film. Copy belonging to the film's editor Clarence Kolster, with his name in holograph pencil on the first revision page, and notations throughout, mostly noting cut (or completed) scenes. Actress Bette Davis' name on the front wrapper in holograph pencil, though Davis was the lead role in the earlier 1934 John Cromwell version. This second film version of W. Somerset Maugham's classic novel stars Paul Henreid as a clubfooted medical student. Eleanor Parker is Mildred, the vulgar cockney waitress adored by Philip Carey (Henreid). The subject matter of Maugham's novel, exploring how sexual obsession can lead to ruin, was missing in the 1946 version thanks to studio censors, and Alexis Smith, who played the second female lead, said the remake should never have been produced. Orange titled wrappers, noted as 2nd REV FINAL on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped copy No. 40, dated June 22, 1944. Distribution page present, with receipt removed. Title page present, dated 6/22/44, with a credit for screenwriter Turney. 169 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 219 (several pages omitted). Mimeograph, with blue revision pages throughout, dated variously between 8/12/44 and 8/29/44. Pages Very Good plus, wrapper Very Good with an archival repair to a long tear in the front wrapper, now encapsulated in mylar. Bound with two gold brads. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
