About this Item

First Edition. Original 72 page shooting script with color rewrite pages, dated March 9, 1946, for the musical comedy film ÔWelcome StrangerÕ directed by Elliott Nugent, starring Bing Crosby, Joan Caulfield, Barry Fitzgerald, Frank Faylen, and Wanda Hendrix. Bradbound. With some dust soiling, staining, and wear to the covers, with the interior in uniformly very good condition. The film tells the story of a small town New England doctor (Fitzgerald) who hires a replacement (Crosby) for his vacation sight unseen. Romance, mischief, and medicine combine to make this a charming film. Arthur Sheekman (1901 - 1978) started out as a newspaper columnist and drama critic with the ÔManhattan NewspaperÕ before turning his sights to a career in the Hollywood film industry. In 1931 he worked as a scenarist for the classic Marx Brothers film ÔMonkey BusinessÕ which was the beginning of SheekmanÕs close personal and professional relationship with Groucho Marx. Sheekman also worked as a script writer on the Marx Brothers film ÔDuck SoupÕ and on Groucho and ChicoÕs radio series ÔFlywheel, Shyster, and FlywheelÕ. Other Sheekman film projects include the 1933 Eddie Cantor musical ÔRoman ScandalsÕ (where he met his future bride, the lovely actress Gloria Stuart), Danny KayeÕs ÔWonder ManÕ (1945), Bing CrosbyÕs ÔWelcome StrangerÕ (1947) and ÔMr. MusicÕ (1950), Joe E. BrownÕs ÔThe GladiatorÕ (1938), ÔCall Me MadamÕ (1953), and Daniel MannÕs ÔAdaÕ (1961). Bookseller Inventory # 18329E
