Harold Hecht Productions, Inc., [earlier than July 1962]. [1],180 leaves. Quarto. Mimeographed typescript, brad-bound in printed wrappers. Title lettered on lower edge, wrappers somewhat worn and marked, modest use, internally actually a very nice copy, overall VERY GOOD. An unspecified -- but certainly early -- draft of this adaptation to the screen of Gaddis' biography of Robert Stroud. The 3 July 1962 release, directed by John Frankenheimer, starred Burt Lancaster as Stroud, and a release running time of 147 minutes suggests that extensive portions of this draft were cut in the revision process. An uncommon script for the multiple award-nominated film. BIRDMAN OF ALCATRAZ was the first of a series of classic films directed by Frankenheimer, followed, in short order, by such masterpieces as THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, SEVEN DAYS IN MAY and SECONDS. As the cinema of the 1960s evolved, American film created a number of classic antiheroes, and Robert Stroud as the Birdman was certainly one of the early prototypes. Bookseller Inventory # 10397
