1975 - Writer/Producer LIN SUTHERLAND'S ANNOTATED DRAFT of IN DUBIOUS BATTLE, an adaptation of JOHN STEINBECK'S 1936 NOVEL. This ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY ADAPTATION by Lin Sutherland is undated, but probably circa 1975. Mimeographed manuscript with annotations, plain green covers, bound with 3 brass clasps on the left side, pages 3-hole punched, 8.5" x 11", printed on one side only, 132 pages. The front cover has a "#2" written lightly at the top, perhaps indicating this was copy #2. The annotations are in hand, in pencil, presumably by Lin Sutherland. Most of the annotations / changes are small, a few lines removed here, a few words changed there, etc. About 14 pages have a change or two. There is also something whited out on the first page, looks like it was perhaps a drawing or doodle. Together With: Mimeographed ORIGINAL DRAFT ADAPTATION of IN DUBIOUS BATTLE by FRANK PACKARD, possibly a re-write / re-working of the Draft by Lin Sutherland. This copy has blue paper covers and the Corporate Label of the Hollywood Literary Agency ZIEGLER, DISKANT, INC. on the front cover (run by the Renowned Literary Agent EVARTS ZIEGLER). Mimeographed manuscript, plain blue covers, bound with 3 brass clasps on the left side, pages 3-hole punched, 8.5" x 11", printed on one side only, 117 pages. The cover label on the front cover identifies Lin Sutherland as the original (draft) author. The title page lists "Screenplay by Frank Packard". NEITHER OF THESE SCREENPLAYS WAS EVER PRODUCED, AND STEINBECK'S NOVEL HAS NEVER BEEN BROUGHT TO THE SCREEN. (The Great Documentary Filmmaker, Pare Lorentz (known for his documentaries of the Nuremberg Trials, and of FDR's New Deal Programs), attempted to bring an adaptation of In Dubious Battle to the screen in 1939, but that attempt was also never realized.) Both Screenplays are in VERY GOOD condition, there is a bunch of white out on the first page of Lin Sutherland's screenplay (perhaps whiting out a drawing or doodle), there are a few marks and spots to the covers, overall just lightly used and still tight, bright and clean. THESE 2 UNPRODUCED, UN-FILMED SCREENPLAYS are VERY SCARCE. About Evarts Ziegler, of Ziegler Diskant Inc. (from his November 30, 1990 Obituary): ******Evarts Ziegler, 74, a literary agent whose clients included Joan Didion, John Gregory Dunne, Robert Towne, Richard Donner, Philip Kaufman, Terrence Malick, Sydney Pollack and Mario Puzo. Ziegler negotiated one of the largest prices ever paid for a film script when he represented William Goldman in the sale of "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" to 20th Century Fox.****** [Attributes: Soft Cover]
