    Description

    Casablanca (Warner Brothers, 1942) Script (158 Pages). The American Film Institute calls "Casablanca" the second greatest film of all time. The Academy Award winning script written by Julius J. Epstein, Philip G. Epstein, and Howard Koch, was based on the unproduced stage play, "Everybody Comes to Rick's," written by Murray Bernett and Joan Allison. It's timeless sense of love and danger has made this Best Picture of 1944 a beloved classic in any sense of the word. This bound copy of the script comes from the Jack Warner library and is said to be Mr. Warner's personal copy. Markings on the inside cover show this to be the final revision dated June 1, 1942. There are the words, Col. Warner, handwritten in pencil in the upper left hand corner of the inside front soft cover. Revision pages are all dated and the final page sports a cast and crew list complete with phone numbers and addresses including Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, and Peter Lorre. Binding and outer hard cover is in near perfect condition. The inside bound soft cover shows some curling and tears along the edges. Pages of the script are near mint. This lot was sold at Christie's East on June 20, 1991, Lor 633. Very Fine+.
