Script Dated: May 20, 1974. Written by: Robert Malcolm Young.
This is an Original Movie Script from the 1974 Horror TV Movie titled, "Locusts". The title page has the working title of the film which was, "Black Harvest".It has the original Carson/Paramount production cover. This script has all white pages throughout the script and it is 89 pages long.
This is the First Draft and some of the Character names used in this script may vary from the names used in the Final Film. The pages inside have copy marks on the upper right corners and the text is very dull on some pages. All of the text can still be read, it's just very faint to the eye.
The copy marks on the upper corner of the pages is common from the 1970's period and it's just how many production companies printed their scripts and issued them out to the Cast & Crew. I have provided some pictures above where you can read the text. The Working Title has been written along the spine of the script, using a black marker.
Please view all of the pictures provided above. It is in good overall condition. A swarm of locusts appears on the horizon near a Midwestern town, and the inhabitants must find a way to destroy or divert them before the insects devour the area's valuable crops.

Every script that we own was hand-picked one at a time over the many years of which we have been collecting. A lot of people, new to collecting, are confused about the word Original.
" In terms of movie scripts, the term "Original means that it was used by the production company in the early stages of production or that it was issued out to the cast and crew members during filming, and used at the time of production. Any scripts printed or used in any fashion after filming has completed are known as either a reproduction or a post-production script. These two types of scripts are much less valuable and desirable. All of our scripts are Original..An original movie script has a lot of character in the item itself and every one of them is different in some way or another. There is usually only one script given to each crew member during production, however, sometimes they do get more than one. This makes original movie scripts very desirable because of how scarce they are. Any changes made to the screenplay during production are known as revisions and these revision pages are inserted into that one script that was issued out to them. For example, if we are talking about a low-budget film with a small cast and only a few crew members, there are actually only a small number of scripts in existence around the world for that film. This aspect of collecting makes it fun but also difficult because there may be a certain writer or director that you love to collect and there may only be a handful of movie scripts that still exist from that specific film that you are looking for. We have some of the rarest movie scripts in the world. Each film project has a different total number of scripts that are issued. The older a film is you also have to figure in the fact that a lot of the original movie scripts have been thrown out or destroyed over time. We do our best to provide the widest selection of original movie scripts in the world. Whatever actor, producer, director, writer or specific film department you are looking for, we probably have a movie script related to the person you are looking for in some form or fashion.
