1 SHEEKMAN, ARTHUR Welcome Stranger. Screenplay by Arthur Sheekman. Adapted by N. Richard Nash and Arthur Sheekman from a Story by Frank Butler
Los Angeles Paramount Pictures 1946 
First Edition. Original 72 page shooting script with color rewrite pages, dated March 9, 1946, for the musical comedy film ‘Welcome Stranger' directed by Elliott Nugent, starring Bing Crosby, Joan Caulfield, Barry Fitzgerald, Frank Faylen, and Wanda Hendrix. Bradbound. With some dust soiling, staining, and wear to the covers, with the interior in uniformly very good condition. The film tells the story of a small town New England doctor (Fitzgerald) who hires a replacement (Crosby) for his vacation sight unseen. Romance, mischief, and medicine combine to make this a charming film. Arthur Sheekman (1901 - 1978) started out as a newspaper columnist and drama critic with the ‘Manhattan Newspaper' before turning his sights to a career in the Hollywood film industry. In 1931 he worked as a scenarist for the classic Marx Brothers film ‘Monkey Business' which was the beginning of Sheekman's close personal and professional relationship with Groucho Marx. Sheekman also worked as a script writer on the Marx Brothers film ‘Duck Soup' and on Groucho and Chico's radio series ‘Flywheel, Shyster, and Flywheel'. Other Sheekman film projects include the 1933 Eddie Cantor musical ‘Roman Scandals' (where he met his future bride, the lovely actress Gloria Stuart), Danny Kaye's ‘Wonder Man' (1945), Bing Crosby's ‘Welcome Stranger' (1947) and ‘Mr. Music' (1950), Joe E. Brown's ‘The Gladiator' (1938), ‘Call Me Madam' (1953), and Daniel Mann's ‘Ada' (1961).
