    Maltese Falcon (Warner Brothers, 1941)Script (147 pages).(9.5" X 11.5"). Do you remember the scene where Kasper Gutman (Sydney Greenstreet) attempts to convince toughguy, Sam Spade, to have a drink? The drink, of course is drugged. If you're a movie fan I'm certain you know the rest of the story. This scene was Mr.Greenstreet's first time in front of a camera. His virgin film performance in this American noir classic earned him an Academy nomination and a place in filmdom's history as one of the alltime best bad guys ever. The script from ,"Maltese Falcon," offered here originally was producer, Henry Blanke's copy used in the production of the picture. It was bound at Warner's and includes the full final shooting script complete with 'blue pages' of changes which were added 6/2/41 just prior to the completion of filming. On page two there is a typewritten list of the cast of character. Beside each description is a handwritten notation of the actor scheduled to portray any given character. Just under the Sam Spade listing is clearly written, George Raft. The script is overall in immaculate condition except for the front and back inner cover which show wear. Very Fine/Near Mint.
