MYSTIC PIZZA Original DRAFT SCREENPLAY / SCRIPT Multi-Color Pages in SAMUEL GOLDWYN COVERS Julia Roberts' Second Film, Matt Damon's First Film 1987
MYSTIC PIZZA Original Draft Screenplay dated September 18, 1987, with multiple revised pages in various colors dated from 10/3/87 through 11/2/87. Screenplay by Amy Jones, Randy and Perry Howze, and Alfred Uhry. The film was released October 18, 1988, over a year after this screenplay draft.
The film stars Julia Roberts, in only her second film role, Lili Taylor, and Annabeth Gish. It was Matt Damon's first screen appearance, he had a minor role. In a 1988 review Roger Ebert said the film "may someday become known for the movie stars it showcased back before they became stars." (Wikipedia)
Multi-Colored 8.5x11 inch sheets, photocopied pages (photocopying was, and still is, how original copies of screenplays were quickly produced and distributed to actors, producers, directors, editors and others involved in a film production), 112+ numbered pages (there are quite a few extra "A" pages, e.g. 58, 58A, 59), plus a title page, pages printed on one side only, 3-hole punched on the left side, bound with 3 brass brads, in Original Samuel Goldwyn Company printed paper covers.
Note that there are many different color revision pages from many different dates (apparently this script was revised over and over, which must have driven the actors crazy). There are also multi-colored stripes drawn on the upper corner of many of the white pages, also marking these pages as revision pages. These original revised screenplays are known as "rainbow scripts". The dates of the revised pages, including the striped revised pages, are listed on the title page.
VERY GOOD condition, the covers have some soiling and edge wear; the three brass brads have oxidized, there are a couple small spots to the title page and inside front cover, otherwise complete, bright and clear.
A rainbow colored Mystic Pizza. Tasty!
