Notorious (Original screenplay for the 1946 film). Author: Hitchcock, Alfred (director); Ben Hecht (screenwriter), Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman (starring) Title: Notorious (Original screenplay for the 1946 film) Publication: Hollywood: RKO Radio Pictures, 1945. Description: Temporary screenplay for the 1946 film.
At 162 pages (the equivalent of nearly 3 hours' running time), this script is much longer than the final edited version, and like many Selznick scripts in the draft stage, is not quite complete (though the camera direction is already quite detailed), ending with the line Alex, are you mad? One of the great Hitchcock films, and one of a handful he made that ventured into more serious dramatic content outside the thriller genre.
Though not credited as a screenwriter in the final film, Hitchcock and Hecht holed themselves up in a room in New York City for days developing the inital screenplay draft, this being the immediate result. Nominated for two Academy Awards, including Best Screenplay. Pale blue titled wrappers, noted as Temporary Screenplay on the front wrapper, dated June 11, 1945, with credits for director Hitchcock and screenwriter Hecht. Distribution page present, with receipt intact, rubber stamped Script No. 162 leaves, mimeograph, with white revision pages dated 6/12/45.
