Book Description Mirisch Corporation, United Artists, Hollywood, Califoarnia, 1967. Soft cover. Condition: Good. 1st Edition. ORIGINAL COMBINED CONTINUITY SCRIPT / SCREENPLAY of IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT, the 1967 FILM Directed by NORMAN JEWISON and Starring ROD STEIGER and SIDNEY POITIER. This Combined Continuity (each scene is described in full detail "combining" camera shots, camera angles, dialogue, actions, etc.) is dated June 12th, 1967. At the end of the last page is the statement: "Continuity taken from work picture (a working print) & mag track (magnetic sound track) by Laura Rosser's Film Continuity Service, P.O. Box 1603, Hollywood 28, California, Phone: NO 1-16115". The film was produced by The Mirisch Corporation and Released by United Artists on August 2, 1967. Continuities (Continuity Scripts) were an important part of the film industry. Typically created after a film was "in the can", but before it was released, a continuity created a written "copy" of a film. A good "Continuity", especially a "Combined Continuity", provided a comprehensive transcription of the finished film. Continuities were created both for copyright protection and for a "record" of a film. Many early films easily degenerated, and many others were wiped out to recover their silver. A true continuity script was therefore often the only archived, word-by-word, shot-by-shot, scene-by-scene, record of many films. Mimeographed sheets, yellow front cover, 8.5x14", mimeographed on one side only, 98 pages plus the cover page. Two hole punched at the top and bound by a metal bracket. Laid in a legal size manila folder. The metal bracket has rusted somewhat and has left its rust imprint onto both the front and rear covers of the manila folder. The manila folder has a typed title on its tab: "IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT". This script was clearly filed away, perhaps in a legal department, perhaps in the Studio's files. LAID-IN the manila folder, on top of the Continuity / Screenplay, is a TYPED SIGNED LETTER by NORMAN JEWISON. The letter is on NORMAN JEWISON'S PERSONAL STATIONERY. The letter is addressed to PHILLIP LAMBRO, a Composer of Film Scores. The letter is dated APRIL 24, 1968, only 14 days after the April 10, 1968, 40th ACADEMY AWARDS that presented Oscars to films released in 1967. IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT won MULTIPLE OSCARS at the 40th Academy Awards, including BEST PICTURE (and, perhaps of interest to Phillip Lambro, BEST SOUND). Norman Jewison's letter to Phillip Lambro clearly refers to the film's success at the Academy Awards. The letter reads: "Dear Phillip: / Thank you for your thoughtful letter. It was muchly appreciated. / It was a very exciting and rewarding night for our picture, and I thank you again for caring. / Yours, / Norman (signed)". (Phillip Lambro is a composer who had a short career as a composer of film scores. Lambro wrote the original score to Polanski's film Chinatown, which, before the film was released, was replaced by a score by Jerry Goldsmith.) Condition: The cover / title page is mostly torn away from the metal bracket at the top, and is worn along its edges with small closed tears; the last few pages are worn along their bottom edge; otherwise a bright, clean copy that clearly has been safely filed away. The laid-in TLS letter has folds from where it was probably folded to fit into an envelope (envelope is not present), and has some general creases from handling, but remains sturdy, bright and clear. One of the 20th Centuries Great Films, with an Associated Letter from the Film's Director. Scarce. About the 40th Academy Awards (from Wikipedia): ******The 40th Academy Awards honored film achievements of 1967. Originally scheduled for April 8, 1968, the awards were postponed for two days until April 10, 1968, because of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The big winner was Norman Jewison's IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT with FIVE OSCARS for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Screenplay, Best Film Editing, and Best Sound).******.
