The Dialogue Continuity is a shot-by-shot / reel-by-reel breakdown of the script. VERY GOOD Condition: age-toning and light wear, 3 pages pulled from the staple but all pages are present, bottom edgewear to one pulled page, in some areas of the page bottoms the photocopying has made the printing difficult to read, but it is still mostly legible, overall tight, bright, clean and unmarked.
Scarce, this is the only copy of the Dialogue Continuity Screenplay of The Magnificent Seven I have seen, there are none in the OCLC. Continuity Scripts were an important part of the film industry in its early days. They were typically created after a film was "in the can", but before it was released, in order to create a written "copy" of the film. A good "Continuity" provided a transcription of every shot and scene in detail as it occurred in the finished film, something that could obviously not be known until a film was completed.
A true continuity script was therefore often the only archived, scene-by-scene, record of many early films. The Magnificent Seven, the iconic western by John Sturges, is a celebrated adaptation of the legendary Akira Kurosawa film The Seven Samurai, transferred to the Wild West, and shot on location in Mexico. The Magnificent Seven has only William Roberts credited as the screenwriter, but both Walter Bernstein and Walter Newman contributed significantly to the creation of one of the greatest westerns ever filmed.
