    Eleven Issues of FILM A DOBA, the CZECHOSLOVAKIAN FILM JOURNAL that was, during the Sixties and Seventies, both a well respected publication of reviews of Czech and International Films, and an important intellectual force during the Russian Occupation. Ten of these issues are from the 1970s and one is from 1967, all years in which the Czech film industry was highly regarded even while being regulated by the Russians.

    The eleven issues are from: 1967 (1), 1972 (1), 1973 (3), 1975 (2), 1976 (2), 1977 (1), and 1978 (1).

    Softcover magazines, side stapled, 8x10.5 inches, approximately 50 to 60 pages each.

    The eleven issues are in FAIR to GOOD condition, the issues all have a stiff vertical crease down the middle from being folded in half (perhaps delivered that way); some of the issues have bumped/creased spine ends, most have some edge and corner wear; the covers have some soiling; there are some small stains and a bit of writing here and there, a couple of the covers are pulling from the staples; internally, the pages are printed on cheap paper that has browned (this was during the Russian occupation, after all); one page has a long horizontal tear across its face that has been repaired with clear tape; there are creases and other signs of handling; nonetheless these 11 issues are solid and complete.

    An interesting look at one aspect of the intellectual and artistic life in Czechoslovakia during the Russian occupation.

    Issues of Film A Doba published during the Russian Occupation are hard to find.

    INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: These 11 issues will require additional shipping charges. After placing your order you will be notified of the additional charges and be able to accept or reject them before your payment is processed.

GOOD MINUS condition, the pages are creased at all their corners, the title page is creased with some small tears along its left edge, there is wear around the two upper staples including some extra staple holes and staple impressions, the last page has pulled from the staples (i.e. is loose), otherwise a complete, clean, clear copy. SCARCE FIRST REVISED DRAFT of this groundbreaking science fiction short film. It is the only copy I have and the only copy I have ever seen. About the 1990 film 12:01 P.M. (from Wikipedia): ******12:01 PM is a 1990 short film starring Kurtwood Smith. Directed by Jonathan Heap, it originally aired on cable television in 1990 as part of the Showtime 30 Minute Movie anthology series. It was nominated for an Academy Award.

    It is the first film adaptation of the short story "12:01 PM" by Richard A. Lupoff, which was published in the December 1973 edition of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. The major plot device is a time loop or time bounce, and bears great similarity to that of the 1993 film Groundhog Day. Lupoff and Jonathan Heap, director of the 1990 film, were "outraged" by the apparent theft of their idea, but after six months of lawyers conferences and substantial expenses, they decided to drop the case against Columbia Pictures. In the 1990 film, Kurtwood Smith plays Myron Castleman, an everyman stuck in a loop that forces him to constantly relive the same hour of his life over and over, being the only person aware of this. During one loop, he discovers that a scientist named Nathan Rosenbluth has predicted an event that matches his experience. Castleman calls him and explains what is going on, however, Rosenbluth is highly skeptical of his claims. Over the next loops, Myron struggles to get into contact with Rosenbluth again, and in the process becomes frustrated to the point of screaming at his secretary and throwing his suitcase into traffic. Eventually, he does manage to talk to Rosenbluth, who initially dismisses Myron as crazy until Myron describes the transition as the scientist had predicted (including the phrase "Consciousness is an independent variable," which is central to Rosenbluth's theories). The professor sadly informs Castleman that there is nothing that can be done, causing Myron to become hysterical and shoot himself. There is a brief pause until Myron finds himself back at the beginning of the loop, realizing that he is trapped for eternity. This version has NEVER BEEN RELEASED ON DVD IN THE U.S. In the 1993 film the main character keeps reliving the same 24 hour period (which in this case restarts at one minute past midnight, rather than midday as in the other versions). This version differs from the 1990 film in that it features a much lighter and more comedic tone, and that the protagonist ultimately finds a way to correct the time loop over the course of the film. This version was released on DVD in the United States on November 28, 2006.******

    The photo itself is soft-focus. Printed on the photo in white is "Autrey 10". About ALMA RUBENS (from Wikipedia and IMDB): ******Alma Rubens (1897 - 1931) was an American film actress. Alma Rubens was born Alma Genevieve Reubens in San Francisco, California. She was interested in entertaining at an early age. By the time she was 19 she had become a full-fledged star. Her break came in 1916 in the film Reggie Mixes In (1916). Six more films followed that year, and she won critical acclaim in The Half-Breed (1916). In 1917 she again starred in a box-office smash, The Firefly of Tough Luck (1917). She became a busy young actress with role after role and hit after hit. In 1924, as Mildred Gower, she performed magnificently in The Price She Paid (1924). After a busy 1925, Alma suddenly found it difficult to obtain work, but it was not because her star had suddenly dimmed - it was because of her addiction to heroin. The money she made dwindled away in search of the next high. She was in and out of mental asylums, but it didn't really help much because she was still dabbling in drugs. Weakened by her habit, she died in Los Angeles in 1931, of pneumonia. She was less than a month away from her 34th birthday. Her final two films were two years earlier, Show Boat (1929) and She Goes to War (1929).******

    ORIGINAL RELEASE SCRIPT / SCREENPLAY of THE PRIVATE LIFE OF HENRY VIII, Starring CHARLES LAUGHTON, Directed by ALEXANDER KORDA, Written by Lajos Biro. This Original "Release Script" is undated, but such documents, created to archive every shot, scene and line of dialogue in the finished film, were normally produced just after a film was "in the can" and just before or just after the finished film was released.

This Original "Release Script" is undated, but such documents, created to archive every shot, scene and line of dialogue in the finished film, were normally produced just after a film was "in the can" and just before or just after the finished film was released. The film was Produced and Shot in Britain by London Film Productions Limited, and was Released in the U.S. by United Artists in August 1933, so this "Release Script" would be circa 1933, though it is possible this final record of the film was produced later. Original mimeographed pages in tan paper covers, title typed on to front cover, mimeographed on 8" x 13" paper, mimeographed on one side only on fine paper that is watermarked "64 Mill / Hard Sized", bound with 3 staples at the left margin, 46 pages. Contains 2 pages of credits, followed by a reel by reel, shot by shot continuity of the film, followed by a reel by reel dialogue continuity of the film. Release Scripts and Continuity Scripts (Continuities) were an important part of the film industry in its early days. They were typically created just before or just after a film was released, in order to create a written "copy" of the film. A good "Continuity" provides a transcription of every shot, scene and piece of dialogue, as it occurred in the finished film, something that could obviously not be known until a film was completed and "in the can". Continuities were created both for copyright protection and for an original

    "record" of a film, thus a copy might be kept by the studio and by the studio's legal department. Many early films easily degenerated, and many others were wiped out to recover their silver. A true continuity script was therefore often the only archived, shot-by-shot, scene-by-scene, word-by-word, record of many early films. One could, conceivably, reconstruct a film from a Release Script or Continuity. GOOD condition, the rear cover is disbound, some of the latter pages have pulled from the upper staple, the staples are rusted, the front cover has some edge wear, creases and light soiling, the inner pages are very nice, a spot of foxing here and there, one page is folded at its lower corner (the paper was cut incorrectly, not affecting text), the mimeographed printing runs somewhat dark and light but is always clear and fully legible.

    Rare Original Release Script / Screenplay of Charles Laughton's great film.

Internally, the title page has torn from its upper bracket, is coming loose, and has numerous creases; the next couple of pages have a few crease but are still sturdy and in place; all the pages are lightly toned / browned with age; otherwise the pages are just lightly used and still complete, bright, clean and unmarked.

(Photocopying was, and often still is, how original copies of working budgets, with changes, were quickly produced and distributed to studios, producers, agents, directors, and others involved in a motion picture production.)

    Every page has detailed information regarding the film's budget, including costs of extras, gaffers, stars, makeup and hairdressing, set designs, equipment, etc. etc. etc. This was truly a working budget, with white-out changes here and there throughout as cost estimates changed.

    The budget pages are in VERY GOOD condition, lightly age toned, some signs of handling, and some white-out changes here and there (as noted above), otherwise the pages are bright, clean, clear and unmarked. The manila folder holding the budget breakdown has creases, wear, and some small stains.

    A wonderful and intimate look at the breakdown of every cost involved in the production of a major motion picture in 1968.

    About Robert Altman's Film NASHVILLE (from Wikipedia):

    ******Nashville is a 1975 American satirical musical ensemble comedy drama film directed by Robert Altman. The film follows various people involved in the country and gospel music businesses in Nashville, Tennessee, over a five-day period, leading up to a gala concert for a populist outsider running for President on the Replacement Party ticket.

    Nashville was released by Paramount Pictures in the summer of 1975, and opened to critical acclaim. Patrick McGilligan of The Boston Globe wrote that it was "perhaps the most talked about American movie since Orson Welles' Citizen Kane." Nashville was nominated for a total of 11 Golden Globe Awards, to date the highest number of nominations received by one film. It was also nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director (Altman), and Best Supporting Actress (both Lily Tomlin and Ronee Blakely). Selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry in 1992, it is now considered Altman's magnum opus, and by many critics to be one of the greatest films of all time.******

    About DAN PERRI (from Wikipedia):

    ******Daniel Richard Perri, b.1945, is a film and television title sequence designer, responsible for the main titles of many films including: The Exorcist (1973), Nashville (1975), Taxi Driver (1976), Star Wars (1977), Raging Bull (1980), Airplane! (1980), and Suspiria (2018).

    Possibly Perri's best known title sequence project came about in 1976 when he was introduced to director George Lucas, who invited Perri to Industrial Light & Magic. Perri eventually developed a concept for presenting a textual introduction to the film in which the credits are shown distorted by a sharp perspective and rolling along towards a distant vanishing point. Lucas approved the idea and Perri produced sketches and prototype mechanical artwork that gave birth to the now familiar opening crawl sequence that appears in the Star Wars films.

    Perri has stated that Lucas offered him a share of royalties from the film in lieu of his ordinary fee; Perri rejected the offer and has regretted his choice ever since.******

    It appears that this 1976 draft was being produced by Capricorn Productions of Venice, California. The company name / address / phone stamp is on the title page. It also appears that this project was being shopped by PAUL KOHNER, a Hollywood Super Agent. Laid in is his handwritten note on his letterhead that states: "NO / (Returned?) by (??) / Not very high on it. / Do you still want / discuss with him?" Also in the hand of Paul Kohner is a note on the title page: "Return to Pamela" which is then circled along with the company stamp of Capricorn Productions.

    This 1976 John Melson draft was apparently NEVER used. Capricorn Productions abandoned the movie project. Norma Heyman later took on the task of producing a film version of the book and another writer, Christopher Hampton, was brought in to write the screenplay. The title of the film was CHANGED to BEYOND THE LIMIT for its U.S. release, but retained the title HONORARY CONSUL for the U.K.

    (Interesting Note: By producing the film The Honorary Consul, Norma Heyman, born 1940, became the first British woman to produce an independent feature film by herself.)

    Photocopied on plain white paper (copy machine copies were, and still are, common among production and working scripts; drafts could be quickly made and sent to the film's writers, producers, directors, etc.), 8.5x11 inches, 132 pages printed on one side only, pages are 3-hole punched and bound in plain orange paper covers with 2 brass brads.

    VERY GOOD condition, the plain green paper front cover has a diagonal crease; internally the pages are just lightly toned at the edges, otherwise

    complete, tight, bright, clean and clear copy. A very presentable copy.

    The full breadth and beauty of Ingmar Bergman's incredible film is only fully realized in the format he originally intended, the four part, five hour television film. This 1979 screenplay draft was the embodiment of that vision.

    However, Bergman was convinced to make a drastically cut version (3 hours versus 5 hours) for limited release in Europe in late 1982 so that the film would qualify for the Academy Awards. After the spliced and diced film finished its very limited European release, and after it won 4 academy awards (it was nominated for six), a 5 hour theatrical film was given limited European theatrical release. That five hour film was basically a spliced together version of the intended four part, five hour television film. Finally, also in 1983, the full four part, five hour television film was shown in Sweden (Fanny och Alexander) in the form Bergman originally intended.

    I do not believe that Bergman's preferred 5 hour version was ever filmed in English. His original intent was clearly to have the four part, five hour telefilm made and shown on television in both Sweden and the United States. Thus this 1979 English translated draft screenplay. But instead only the drastically shortened film version was ever released theatrically in the United States. That film was released in 1983, four years after this 1979 screenplay for television was looking for U.S. producers.

    This Original 1979 Draft Screenplay for the Full Four Part, Five Hour Television Film was sent to Super Agent Paul Kohner (long time agent for Ingmar Bergman and for many of Bergman's film stars). Paul Kohner's ownership label is on the title page, with his early phone number CRESTVIEW 1-5165.

    SCARCE. This 1979 INGMAR BERGMAN Draft SCREENPLAY for his vision of a Five Hour, Four Part FILM for TELEVISION, is the only copy I have, and it is the only copy I have ever seen.

Another writer was brought in who was also fired, then in late 1982 JEFFREY BOAM was rehired, and finally wrote the final script. So, this EARLY DRAFT is before ALL the CHANGES brought on by various screenplay writers (including King), film studios, etc. Rare as such.

    An ORIGINAL, UNPUBLISHED, REJECTED, EARLY DRAFT SCREENPLAY by JEFFREY BOAM, before he was later rehired to rewrite the screenplay.

    The screenplay is dated "February 17, 1981", as shown on the title page. The later, very different screenplay that Boam was rehired to write (after King's screenplay was rejected), was finished on November 8, 1982, a year and nine months after this draft. The film itself was released on October 8, 1983.

    Pages are photocopied on 8.5x11 inch paper (photocopying was, and still is, how original copies of a draft script were quickly produced and distributed to film producers, agents, directors, and others involved in a motion picture production), pages printed on one side only 124 pages plus a title page.

    VERY GOOD condition, just some light signs of handling, overall a great original copy of this early draft screenplay.

    About the Film THE DEAD ZONE and its Various SCREENPLAY ITERATIONS including the KING SCREENPLAY DRAFT (from Wikipedia):

    ******The Dead Zone is a 1983 American horror thriller film Directed by David Cronenberg. The Screenplay by Jeffrey Boam was based on the 1979 novel of the same name by Stephen King. The film stars Christopher Walken,, Brooke Adams, Tom Skerritt, Herbert Lom, Anthony Zerbe, Colleen Dewhurst and Martin Sheen.

    The plot revolves around a schoolteacher, Johnny Smith (Walken), who awakens from a coma to find he has psychic powers.

    Lorimar Film Entertainment began developing The Dead Zone film adaptation. Producer Carol Baum gave the book to screenwriter Jeffrey Boam and asked him to write a screenplay. "I saw it had great possibilities and agreed to do it," Boam said. He developed a script for director Stanley Donen, who left the project before the film reached production at Lorimar.

    Lorimar eventually closed its film division, after a series of box-office failures, to concentrate on Television (Lorimar later tentatively reopened its film production). Soon after, producer Dino De Laurentiis bought the rights to The Dead Zone.

    Dino De Laurentiis disliked Boam's screenplay and asked STEPHEN KING to ADAPT HIS OWN NOVEL into a screenplay. However, after receiving STEPHEN KING'S DRAFT SCREENPLAY, De Laurentiis reportedly rejected King's script as "involved and convoluted". David Cronenberg, who ultimately directed the film, said that he also decided not to the use Stephen King's script, finding it "needlessly brutal".

    After rejecting Stephen King's Draft De Laurentiis later rejected another script, one written by Andrei Konchalovsky, before eventually returning to Jeffrey Boam to write yet another script. De Laurentiis hired producer Debra Hill to work with Cronenberg and Boam.

    Boam submitted the final draft of the screenplay on November 8, 1982.******
