    Original TV SCRIPT for the Controversial HAWAII FIVE-O Episode "BORED, SHE HUNG HERSELF". Season 2 Episode 16. Written by Mel Goldberg. FIRST DRAFT dated September 22, 1969. A Leonard Freeman Production in association with CBS Television Network.

    COPY of HOWARD SMITH, the Film Editor for this episode and many other episodes of Hawaii Five-O. His Original Hand SIGNATURE is at the top of the front cover. Interestingly, HOWARD SMITH'S Filmography on IMDB lists the episodes of Hawaii Five-O that he edited, but does not list this episode. Read on to see why.

    A highly controversial episode that was broadcast only once, never to be seen again. As stated on the MetaCritic website: "This episode is not available for television syndication due to the controversial content. A viewer reportedly imitated the hanging 'exercise' and died."

    The episode was, in effect, banned. Since its original broadcast on Jan. 7, 1970 it has not been rebroadcast by the network, it has never been included in the syndication packages sold to local stations or cable channels; and it has not been made available to viewers via home video or streaming. Even the HAWAII FIVE-O COMPLETE SERIES DVD COLLECTIONS do not contain the episode (they contain the following disclaimer: "Due to viewer reaction following the original telecast of the episode 'Bored, She Hung herself' (Season 2, episode 16), that episode has not been re-broadcast or released in any manner since its original airing and is not included in this collection.")

    I guess even Howard Smith no longer wanted to be associated with the controversy!

    Blue heavy stock paper covers, 3 hole punched, bound with 2 brass brads, 8.5x11 inches, 61 plain white photocopied pages printed on one side only (photocopying was, and often still is, how original copies of scripts were quickly produced and distributed to actors, producers, directors, editors and others involved in a production). The HAND SIGNATURE of HOWARD SMITH is ORIGINAL and UNIQUE to this copy (i.e. NOT photocopied).

    VERY GOOD condition, the covers and inner pages have a crease to their upper corner and toning to their edges, otherwise the copy is bright and clear.

    Nearly impossible to find (and I'm sure many would like it never to be found), but here it is, straight from the episode's editor.

    The controversy is well explained on the Internet by the Snopes website:

    ******What is it about this one "Hawaii Five-0" episode, alone out of the series' run, that has kept it locked away? The plot featured Don Miles, a "health freak" (i.e., stock hippie character) who practiced what would now be identified as autoerotic asphyxiation (i.e., strangling or suffocating oneself to heighten sexual arousal and orgasm) but in the staid world of 1960s television was described as a form of "yoga" or "meditation." When Miles' girlfriend, Wanda Parker, is discovered dead after a violent argument with him, hanging from the same noose he employed for his "yoga," Parker's prominent psychiatrist father is insistent that Miles murdered her. (The real killer proves to be a neighbor, who strangled Wanda after she refused his advances.)******

    And, in case you are wondering, NO, David Carradine did not portray the character Don Miles.

    Camp Anawan was established in 1913. During WWII it was sold to the Boston Catholic Diocese and went from being a fun loving camp for girls to a camp for boy seminarians. What a dreary change, imho!

    About DARD HUNTER (from Wikipedia):

    ******William Joseph "Dard" Hunter, b.1883 d.1966, was an American authority on printing, paper, and papermaking, especially by hand, using sixteenth century tools and techniques. He is known for, among other things, the production of two hundred copies of his book Old Papermaking, for which he prepared all aspects: Hunter wrote the text, designed and cast the type, did the typesetting, handmade the paper, and printed and bound the book. A display at the Smithsonian Institution that appeared with his work read, "In the entire history of printing, these are the first books to have been made in their entirety by the labors of one man." He also wrote Papermaking by Hand in America (1950), a similar but even larger undertaking.******

    Barbara Adams went on three world tours with the SF Ballet. In 1959 the S.F. Ballet went on a "Middle East Tour". There are programs, snapshots, letters, documents, and all sorts of other ephemera related to these tours in the "Tour" folder.

    There is also a large group of letters from Turkey, Greece, Paris, Lebanon, and elsewhere, written while she was on tour with the Ballet. The letters are written to her mother, HAZEL M. JOHNSTON.

    Everything is in generally GOOD condition, lightly used, handled and aged. Nice.

    A wonderful and intimate look at the San Francisco Ballet in its early years, and during its early world tours, seen mainly through the eyes of Barbara Adams, Ballerina. I leave it to you to really dig through, discover and enjoy.

    A couple notes about the S.F. Ballet during the years Barbara Adams danced and toured the world with the Company (from the S.F. Ballet website):

    1957 - The Company makes its international debut with an 11 nation tour to Asia and the Middle East sponsored by the U.S. Department of State as an effort to present American culture around the world. The tour is so successful that it is followed by a four month tour of Latin America in 1958, and a three month tour of the Middle East in 1959.

    1958 - To celebrate the Company's 25th anniversary, Lew Christensen creates Beauty and the Beast, his second full-length ballet for San Francisco Ballet, which becomes one of the most popular works over the next decade.

Designed during the terrible privation and unrest of the Great Depression, Lehmann's labels graced hundreds of thousands of bottles of mass manufactured beverages, invoking deliciously unrealistic fantasies of peace, plenty, and the high-class life. Marrying design with consumer ideology, the Lehmann oeuvre represents a forgotten high point of American commercial art.

    Founded in 1911 by Adolph Lehmann with an initial investment of $190, the firm expanded into a major industrial printing operation by 1935. One journalist called Lehmann "the printer who hasn't heard about the depression." The company employed one hundred people, including a permanent staff of anonymous artists who designed each custom label with skillful care. To meet an ever increasing demand for labels, Lehmann also pioneered a stock label service in the mid-1930s, creating catalogs of generic labels with stock vignettes that could be applied to a wide variety of products.

    The Lehmann art department flourished in the fast pace of mass production, finding in their daily grind opportunities for seemingly inexhaustible creative invention. Their visual vocabulary included certain recurring motifs - parted curtains, heavy vines, and peaceful fields - and surprisingly effective combinations of Art Deco design with romanticized references to the Middle Ages, the Mission Era, and the Gold Rush. The labels mythologized both California's past and present, illustrating a vision of social and industrial harmony from which the bitter realities of history were excluded.

    The exhibition features hundreds of colorfully illustrated labels, ephemera, and label catalog books from Lehmann Printing.******

I have never seen another copy of this particular poster.

    About GEORGE MARTIN CUNHA (from his 1994 obituary):

    ******George M. Cunha, b.1911 d.1994, Director Emeritus and founder of the Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) in Andover, Massachusetts. Born in Providence, Rhode Island, and long-time resident of Topsfield, Massachusetts, he moved to Kentucky with his wife Dorothy Grant Cunha in 1980. Cunha was an international authority in the field of preservation of library and archival materials.

    Cunha influenced a whole generation of people who now practice conservation and manage preservation programs in institutions in all parts of the country. His books are recognized as classics in the field and filled a vacuum at a time when there was no other literature on the subject of conservation of library materials.

    A graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the United States Naval War College, Captain Cunha was a combat pilot during World War II and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. In 1963, after 26 years of service in the Navy as a pilot and underwater weapons specialist, he became Chief Conservator at the Library of the Boston Athenaeum. He spearheaded the creation of the New England Document Conservation Center (as it was then known) and became its first director in 1973. Captain Cunha was a Fellow of the American Institute for Conservation, the Royal Society of Arts (London), the Society of American Archivists, and the Pilgrim Society.******

    About PAUL GARDÈRE (from Wikipedia):

    ******Paul Claude Gardère, b.1944 d.2011, was a Haitian born Brooklyn based artist whose work explored "post colonial history, cultural hybridization, race, and identity, in and beyond the Haitian diaspora." Gardère's work has been widely exhibited throughout the United States, and is included in collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Brooklyn Museum, the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Figge Art Museum, the Beinecke Library at Yale University, the Cornell University Museum of Art at Cornell University, and other prominent collections.

    Gardère emigrated to New York City in 1959 where he studied at Cooper Union School of Art and Architecture. He developed a personal style that blended Haitian regionalist ideas, painting styles, and cultural symbols with "the larger aesthetics of Modern art". His work is heavily informed by religious and mythological symbolism, which he saw as a way of building a metaphysical bridge between cultures, drawing inspiration from the Old Masters and European Christianity as well as Haitian Regionalist Art and Vodou.******

    LILITH: A DRAMATIC POEM, by GEORGE STERLING.

    Wrappers, staple bound, 5.5x8.5 inches, 110 pages.

    FAIR CONDITION: The wrappers are chipped at the top of the spine and missing a 1.5 inch piece at the bottom of the spine, have a bit of edge wear, are tender at the front fold, and the covers have been glued on too widely to the text block at the spine margin (the front cover is glued on for 1 inch at the spine margin and the rear cover is glued on for 1.5 inches at the spine margin). Internally, the rear cover and its attached endpaper have opened too widely, exposing the staple binding, but are still attached; the inner pages have George Sterling's hand corrections here and there as noted above; all pages are lightly toned; there is a small bookseller's label on the inside rear cover "Books Inc. / 336 Sutter St. / San Francisco"; otherwise the inner pages are bright, clean and clear. Despite its flaws, a complete, presentable copy.

    RARE, especially so with the WARM INSCRIPTION and TWO SIGNATURES of George Sterling.

    About GEORGE STERLING (from Wikipedia):

    ******George Sterling, b.1869 d.1926, was an American writer based in the San Francisco, California, Bay Area. He was a prominent poet and playwright and proponent of Bohemianism in the early 20th century. His work was admired by writers as diverse as Jack London and Upton Sinclair. Sterling joined the Bohemian Club and acted in their theatrical productions each summer at the Bohemian Grove. For the Grove play of 1907 the Club presented Sterling's "The Triumph of Bohemia". Sterling carried a vial of cyanide for many years. In November 1926, Sterling used it while at his residence at the San Francisco Bohemian Club. Kevin Starr wrote that "When George Sterling's corpse was discovered in his room at the Bohemian Club... the golden age of San Francisco's bohemia had definitely come to a miserable end."******
