About this Item

4to - over 9" - 12" tall. This 25 leave [irregularly paginated] "Final Screenplay Revisions" is credited to A. J. Russell (possibly Rosalind Russell - see below). Bound in original red printed wraps with 3 brads. The front cover has ink corrections to date and adds "Revisions" (some dampstaining to text margins). PRODUCTION HISTORY: The history of the 1971 feature film "Mrs. Pollifax--Spy", is fairly complex. It is based upon the 1966 novel "The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax", the first in the beloved series of comic mystery novels featuring Mrs. Emily Pollifax, by Dorothy Gilman. The film featured Rosalind Russell, not only appearing in her last film role as Mrs. Pollifax, but receiving writing credit under a pseudonym as well. The property was optioned in April 1966, and was originally to be produced by Jacques Mapes for Ross Hunter Productions as a Universal Pictures release. At some point producer Frederick Brisson, Russell's husband, bought as the property for her. Draft screenplays were produced by Herman Raucher, then later A. J. Russell (possibly a pseudonym of Rosalind Russell). Cycling through several titles, including "The File on Emily Pollifax", and "The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax", the producers settled on "Mrs. Pollifax -- Spy" to tap in on the success of the Bond series and Cold War espionage hype. Behind the camera, David Lowell Rich was first announced as the film's director, but was later replaced by Leslie Martinson. Mapes and Hunter gave way in the producer credits to Brisson. Jacque (sometimes Jacques) Mapes, in addition to professionally collaborating with producer Ross Hunter, was his longtime companion. Bookseller Inventory # 0473525
