ALFIE: Original 113pp Mimeographed Screenplay for the 1966 Film Starring Michael Caine; a Working Script with Copious Annotations by the Wardrobe Department)
[Naughton, Bill] ALFIE. London: Sheldrake Films, 1965. Original 113pp Draft Screenplay bound in original black production company covers, dated April 14, 1965, for the film adaptation of Bill Naughton's novel ALFIE starring Michael Caine in his first leading role. This copy belonged to the film's wardrobe department, most likely to wardrobe supervisor Jean Fairlie; it is heavily annotated with copious notes on the costuming required from scene to scene. One of the many remarkable things about the film ALFIE was its depiction of swinging London in the 1960 and wardrobe was certainly one of the most important elements in creating the "look and feel" of the film. This draft consists primarily of light blue pages but there are several inserted sections of white revision pages dated July 2, 1965. The wardrobe annotations are made on the versos of 40+ leaves in black ink, blue ink, and orange marker and are detailed and extensive. Directed by Lewis Gilbert, co-starring Shelley Winters, and with Naughton doing the screenplay adaptation himself, ALFIE was more than just a success (Five Oscar nominations including Best Picture and Best Screenplay), it has maintained its place over the years as one of the iconic cornerstones of the British film industry resurgence of the mid-1960s. The British Film Institute has ranked ALFIE 33rd on its list of the 100 greatest British Films. The script is complete and in Very Good condition (well-thumbed but with eye appeal). Unique.
