The title page reads, “A BOY'S LIFE by MELISSA MATHISON” with the same date as the cover. Bradbound. Touch of handling and faded areas to the covers, with the interior clean and complete. The back story on the film's creative beginnings are that, after Spielberg's parents' divorce in 1960, he compensated the loss by with an imaginary alien companion. In 1978, he announced he would shoot a film entitled ‘Growing Up' which was subsequently revised to the working title ‘A Boy's Life'. E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial was directed by Steven Spielberg, written by Melissa Mathison, and stars Henry Thomas, Drew Barrymore, Dee Wallace, Peter Coyote, and Robert McNaughton.
