The Gang's All Here [The Girls He Left Behind] (Original screenplay for the 1943 film)
Twentieth Century-Fox, Los Angeles 1943 - Revised Final Script for the 1943 film musical, here under its working title, "The Girls He Left Behind." Directed by Busby Berekeley, written for the screen by Walter Bullock, Tom Bridges, George Root, Jr., and Nancy Wintner (with only Bullock credited here), and starring Alice Faye, Carmen Miranda, and featuring Benny Goodman and his orchestra. Considered by many to be Berkeley's masterpiece (though there are several high spots to choose from), "The Gang's All Here" is indisputably the master film choreographer's wildest and most ambitious effort, with staging and camerawork that are still somewhat unexplainable today, and shot in blazing Technicolor to boot. The film also boasts Carmen Miranda's finest hour, the sparkling "Girl in the Tutti-Frutti Hat." Red titled wrappers, stamped REVISED FINAL on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped project No. 870 and copy No. 53, dated April 19, 1943, and with the holograph file notation "Env. 1474" at the top right corner, and the correct final title, "The Gang's All Here" in the same hand just above the printed working title. Distribution page present, with receipt intact. Title page present, with a credit for screenwriter Bullock. 115 leaves, mimeograph, with blue revision pages throughout, dated variously between 4/26/43 and 6/2/43, Pages and wrapper Near Fine, bound with two gold brads. Hirschhorn, p. 232. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
