JOHNNY GOT HIS GUN . FROM HIS NOVEL OF THE SAME NAME.
Beverly Hills: The Bruce Campbell and Dalton Trumbo Company, [nd. but ca 1968]. - [1],v,136 leaves plus lettered inserts. Quarto. Mimeographed typescript, printed on rectos only of white, yellow and salmon stock. Chip from blank fore-edge of terminal leaf, not affecting text, otherwise very good or better. An unidentified, undated, but revised pre- production draft of Dalton Trumbo's own screenplay adaptation of his novel. A multitude of revises on various colored papers, as well as lettered inserted half- pages, suggests the script was still in flux, and a section preceding the opening of the script includes a brief history of the novel, and quotes international comments about it, clearly in an effort to generate studio interest in the project. We've handled two other drafts of this screenplay, both denoted "final" (but also with revises and similar collations), both dating from the first quarter of 1968. Trumbo also directed the 1971 release, starring Timothy Bottoms, Jason Robards, Donald Sutherland, and Donald Barry. Trumbo won two awards at Cannes for his work on this film.
