    Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom - George Lucas Screenplay by Willard Huyck and Gloria Katz. (Paramount, 1983). Very Fine. Script (133 Pages).
    Vintage original script, under original title of Temple of Death, with red rubber stamp watermark INDY 2 MAR22 00059 on the recto of each leaf, to prevent the reproduction and sale of the script prior to production. Mechanically reproduced, raised text, with one revision in original typescript. A working script produced about one month prior to the commencement of shooting, which began on April 18, 1983. From the collection of cinematographer Carlos Gil. The second film in the renowned Indiana Jones series, a dark prequel to the first installment, Raiders of the Lost Ark. Steven Spielberg spared no effort in making a breathlessly entertaining adventure film in the old style, utilizing a minimum of special effects. Pauline Kael called the film, "one of the most sheerly pleasurable films ever made," and Roger Ebert deemed it, "not so much a sequel as an equal. It's quite an experience." Pages are very fine, as is spring binder. Included is a custom red quarter-leather clamshell box. Black spring binder. Title page present, marked copy No. 00059, dated 3/1/83, noted as Revised, with credits for story writer Lucas, screenwriters Huyck and Katz, and director Spielberg. 133 leaves, mechanically reproduced on yellow stock, with yellow revision pages throughout, dated 3/1/83 and 3/10/83. An extremely scarce screenplay. The binder and box are in excellent condition. Interior script pages have some edge creasing, and handling wear. Minor ink markings from use.

    Estimate: $2,500 - $5,000.
