Mankiewicz, Herman J. (screenwriter) Guy Trosper (story). THE PRIDE OF ST. LOUIS (Darryl Zanuck's Personal Copy of the Original Script for the 1952 Baseball Film Based on the Life and Career of "Dizzy Dean"). Los Angeles: Twentieth Century Fox, June 23rd, 1951. Original Mimeographed 112pp Final Shooting Script brad-bound in blue studio wrappers complete with blue revision pages and Darryl Zanuck's extensive penciled notes (and drawings) present throughout. There are also two typed letters to Zanuck from his staff re: this script bound in. The 1952 film was directed by Harmon Jones and starred Dan Dailey. Likely inspired by THE PRIDE OF THE YANKEES (1942), this movie tells the story of Jerome "Dizzy" Dean, a major-league baseball pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs in the 1930s and 1940s, a Hall of Fame member especially known for his brash and wild personality. This script story by Guy Trosper won an Oscar Nomination. A cool and unique script which doubles as an appealing item for the collector of baseball artifacts. Bookseller Inventory # 001433
