About this Item

Draft script for the 1968 film. Based on George Plimpton's 1966 book. Alan Alda (in his first starring role) plays Plimpton, who has put himself into the sports arena, writing about his experiences. He's entered the ring with a professional boxer and pitched in an All-Star game. He decides to try his hand at being the quarterback of a professional football team, and he gets his opportunity with the Detroit Lions. While everyone involved agrees to keep his secret, feigning time spent as a semi-pro in Canada, it soon becomes clear that he is clueless on the field. Eventually he earns his teammates' respect and even gets to play in an exhibition game. Shot on location in New York, Missouri, and Florida.Blue titled wrappers. Title page present with credits for writers Roman and Plimpton. 132 leaves, mimeograph, with the last leaf of text numbered 131. Pages and wrapper Near Fine, bound with two gold brads.
