Unfilmed Screenplay of Mistress of Mellyn for sale on eBay
MISTRESS OF MELLYN, by VICTORIA HOLT (pseudonym of Eleanor Hibbert) with SCREENPLAY by ELEANORE GRIFFIN. An UNPRODUCED SCREENPLAY.
The Mistress of Mellyn was being developed by Paramount Pictures Corporation, and being Produced by the great PRODUCER HENRY BLANKE (producer of The Maltese Falcon), but the film never made it to the screen.
An Original Vintage Script. "1ST PRELIMINARY GREEN", dated November 29, 1960. Printed on 8.5x11 inch green paper, photocopied (photocopying was how original copies of scripts were quickly produced and distributed to actors, producers, directors, editors and others involved in a film production), 174 pages plus a title page, 2 pages of "CAST", and a blank endpage, pages printed on one side only, 3 hole punched, bound with 3 brass brads.
GOOD condition, the title page has torn away from the upper brad, has age toning to its margins, and a few spots; the blank endpage has tears around the brads and a couple small tears on the page; otherwise the inner pages are just lightly toned and have some corner creases here and there. A complete, nice, original screenplay.
This UNPRODUCED ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY of THE FIRST GOTHIC NOVEL by VICTORIA HOLT (Eleanor Hibbert) is VERY SCARCE.
