12 SILVA, HENRY, ELIZABETH MONTGOMERY, JOSEPH LANDON Johnny Cool - Screenplay by Joseph Landon Based on the Novel The Kingdom of Johnny Cool by John McPartland
Los Angeles Chrislaw Productions [1963] 
Original 139 page final shooting script bradbound in blue printed studio wrappers. Signed on the title page in blue ink by the film's star, Henry Silva using his name as well as that of his character Johnny Cool. Accompanying is the screenplay creation archive belonging to the film's producer Milton Ebbins, consisting of 335 pages of drafts and rewrites used in creating the screenplay consisting of original ribbon typescript, carbon typescript, and typed pasteups. With extensive pencil rewrites, corrections, and commentary about the direction of the screenplay on many of the pages. Very good condition. Considered one of the classics of neo Film Noir, the film was directed by William Asher and starred Henry Silva in the title role, Elizabeth Montgomery, Richard Anderson, Jim Backus, Joey Bishop, Sammy Davis Jr., and Telly Savalas. The film tells the story of the lives and loves of Italian and American gangsters. A very strange and usual crime film, that is even more remarkable in that director William Asher is best remembered for previously directing the largest number of episodes (107) of the great comedy classic - I Love Lucy. Filming Johnny Cool was a 180 degree turn for the director. An amazing archive showing in detail the details and lengths that were taken to craft the screenplay and such a collection is rarely found dealing with a significant film.
