Item Description: Hollywood, CA, 1937. Unbound. Book Condition: Near Fine. Original Manuscript. Hilton, James. 1900-1954. Author of "Lost Horizon" and "Goodbye Mr. Chips, screenwriter of "Mrs. Miniver." ORIGINAL HEAVILY CORRECTED TYPESCRIPT FOR HIS ESSAY "HORIZONS LOST AND FOUND" [n. p., n. d. but Hollywood, California, 1936]. Five pages total: three pages, the complete essay, accomplished on ordinary yellow typing paper -- typed by Hilton himself and revised extensively in black ink. Two further pages of holograph notes re: this manuscript included, also typed and corrected by Hilton. "Horizons Lost and Found" was published in STAGE: The Magazine of After-Dark Entertainment, a monthly periodical, in February of 1937. We know of no other essay of his that is so representative of Hilton at his most stylishly witty, smoothly conversational, and sophisticated best in private hands; here is an opportunity to own, direct from his files, an artifact which contains his own assessment, or snapshot, of his career at its peak. This essay, unlike almost all of his other prolific reviews, speeches and journalistic concoctions, contains specific, fresh and thoughtful references to Goodbye Mr. Chips, Lost Horizon, film director Frank Capra, his screenplay collaborator Robert Riskin, and Hollywood Life in general. While James Hilton was a generous signer of books, his manuscript material is rarely seen. Ex- James Hilton Estate Sale (Christie's Los Angeles, 1999). The typescript is accompanied by an original essay by Hilton-scholar Kurt Kausler entitled "Center Stage: James Hilton at the Pinnacle" and has been placed in a custom binder along with a cornucopia of hard-to-locate Hilton research material related to "Horizons Lost and Found." Unique. Signed. Bookseller Inventory # 002122

She served in Europe as a combat correspondent during World War I, after which she moved to Los Angeles and was employed by director Lois Weber as an assistant, in which position she received a thorough apprenticeship in the film industry. She began writing scripts and attracted the attention of Mary Pickford. The pair began a long relationship as both friends and artists, with Marion serving as Pickford's official screenwriter. She wrote many of Pickford's most famous and memorable silent films as well as many other of the great successful pictures of the 1920s and 1930s, and has been credited with writing 300 scripts and over 130 produced films. Her influence resurrected the career of Marie Dressler and resulted in her greatest glory, and her scripts for Marion Davies are among the most memorable of that actress' oeuvre. She died in 1973, one of the most respected names in Hollywood history. Dupont. Bookseller Inventory # 9-114-1275096
