The Magus [Fowles' Screenplay - Rare]
Blazer Films, London 1967 - Fowles' screenplay for the 1968 film of his second novel, a near-fantasy set on a Greek island and involving a young expatriate Englishman who is drawn into the fantastic designs of a self-styled psychic. The film, with Anthony Quinn, Michael Caine, Candice Bergen and Anna Karina, gained a cult following in the Sixties. The cast included two of the best-known male leads of their time (Quinn & Caine), an up-and-coming young actress who had been nominated for a "Most Promising Newcomer" Golden Globe two years earlier (Bergen), and Anna Karina, a staple in the films of French avant garde director Jean-Luc Godard. The director was Guy Green, a former cinematographer, and while the material may have been a bit much for Green, whose previous movies had been more straightforward than the complicated, partly fantastic plot that Fowles' novel presented him with, the film was nominated for a British Academy award for cinematography. This script bears the name of David Harcourt and has revision sheets dated September 4, 7 and 12, and November 25, 1967. Harcourt is listed as a camera operator on a production schedule (laid in) dated August 15, 1967. Also laid in is the shooting schedule for November 11. These sheets are torn and sunned, but the script itself is near fine and claspbound in very good red covers. An early, complete piece of writing by Fowles, and likely the scarcest item in his bibliography: the Harry Ransom Center acquired a copy with Fowles' papers; the University of Iowa has a copy in its 20th Century Fox collection. It is Fowles' only screenplay to have been produced, and we have never heard of another copy coming on the market. [Attributes: First Edition]
