Original 1931 Fox pre-code EAST LYNNE Lost Film script Ann Harding Clive Brook
Los Angeles: Fox Film Corporation, 1931. Original 100pp Screenplay dated February 26, 1931 for the first "talkie" adaptation of Mrs. Wood's famous Victorian mystery novel about infidelity and double identities. This is the Final Draft of the shooting script without annotations of any kind other than the production numbers written in colored pencil on the front cover. As was occasionally the custom of the early pre-code 1930s, this script is labeled "Screen Continuity" but this is not a post-production script, this is the actual screenplay in normal screenplay format. Starred Ann Harding & Clive Brook and was directed by Frank Lloyd ("Cavalcade" "Mutiny On The Bounty") and written by Tom Berry & Bradley King (King was one of the earliest female screenwriters with 60+ film credits). The pages of the screenplay are in Fine condition, the covers (which are larger than the pages and thus prone to creases and bends) show the wear you'd expect from a working script. There is only one existing copy of the film print which is not in very good condition (thus not available for home video), all the more unfortunate as this "lost" film of EAST LYNNE was one of five Oscar nominees for Best Picture of 1932.
