Illustrated. The shooting script for the 1943 film Mission to Moscow, written by Howard Koch from the novel by Joseph E. Davies, directed by Michael Curtiz, and starring Walter Huston, Ann Harding, Oskar Homolka, George Tobias, Gene Lockhart, and Eleanor Parker. Including the final shooting script, with notes, full cast and crew credits, and extensive appendix. Fine in printed wrappers. From the notes on the rear cover by the editor, David Culbert: “Mission to Moscow is a notorious classic among propaganda films produced in the United States. Never has another feature film been made with such explicit direction from the federal government, although the result failed to persuade every viewer...Mission to Moscow purports to be a documentary account of the career of Joseph Davies, American ambassador to the Soviet Union during 1936-38. What it actually does is rewrite the internal history of Soviet Russia, justifying the purge trials and evading unsavory details about Soviet foreign policy between 1939 and 1941. It also includes an all-out assault on American isolationists.” Howard Koch was the co-writer of Casablanca, and Mission to Moscow helped get him blacklisted in the 1950s.

5 DEAN, JAMES Original Shooting Script Archive for the James Dean Classic Film - Rebel Without a Cause - Formerly Owned by Actor Jack Grinnage, Who Played "Moose", One of the Film's Three Main Hoodlums
Burbank Warner Brothers 1955 
First Edition. The archive of material which belonged to actor Jack Grinnage, who played "Moose", one of the three main hoods, in Rebel Without a Cause. Included are Grinnage's shooting script which he had hardbound, his original vintage Warner Brother studio pass allowing him on the lot specifically mentioning him shooting Rebel, copies of daily call sheets and group of 16 still photographs. Grinnage saved this archive from the landmark film and had the script hardbound, has his personal bookplate and is signed by him on the title page “Jack Grinnage - Moose.” The script which contains the blue color rewrite pages preserves the deletions, additions and changes that the film went through as it was upgraded from a black and white second feature to a Warner Bros. color wide screen release - and which has since become a great classic certainly the great American film of rebellion in youth. The rare photos, with Grinnage's notes on the back, include two of a late night read-through of the script by the whole cast led by film director Nicholas Ray showing Dean wearing his glasses, a beautiful demure young Natalie Wood, Jim Backus barely awake and Grinnage intently studying this very same script. The studio pass, which names the film, was to be surrendered upon receiving his final check, but was kept anyway; it was good only for this picture. The call sheets show Jayne Mansfield auditioned for a role on more than one occasion, and also lists those who won the roles. Precious little production material survives from this film, much less a grouping from one of the participants. This script also contains the cut opening sequence of the film, when the hoods "roll" the old man for the Easter basket and get the wind-up monkey. As fans of the film know, the final cut beginning has Jim drunk on the sidewalk and playing with the wind-up monkey as he is arrested. He then takes it to the police station with no explanation of its origin. A terrific collection of production material from this critically acclaimed film, which defined James Dean to an entire generation. Enclosed in a handsome morocco and cloth clamshell box.
