New York & London: Michael Todd Co. Inc. 18 November 1955. New York & London: Michael Todd Co., Inc., 18 November 1955.. [1],158,[4] leaves. Quarto. Mimeographed typescript, printed on rectos only. Bradbound in stencil-printed production company wrappers, then enclosed in gilt-lettered vinyl binder. Ink note on upper wrapper, a few smudges and curled corners, but a very good copy. Copy #31 of this unspecified preproduction draft of Perelman, James Poe and John Farrow's award-winning adaptation to the screen of Verne's novel. Michael Anderson directed the Oct. 1956 release, one of the first two Todd-AO productions. The cast of literally hundreds spread across a number of countries, and included David Niven, Cantinflas, Noel Coward, John Gielgud, Trevor Howard, Finlay Currie, and many, many others. The film won five Oscars, including Best Picture, and Perelman, Poe and Farrow shared the Oscar for Best Screenplay, as well as NY Film Critics and WGA awards in the same category. It was the last of Perelman's screen credits over a quarter of a century's work. The early ink note on the upper wrapper indicates "Minus Henrietta Seq" but the script collates as complete through "The End," and includes an additional 4 leaf appendix at the end.
