Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, 1950. Clothbound presentation copy of the Revised Final Screenplay (along with many other working materials) for the 1950 film, "Louisa," belonging to script supervisor Dorothy Hughes. Directed by Alexander Hall, written for the screen by Stanley Roberts, and starring Ronald Reagan, Charles Coburn, Edmund Gwenn, Piper Laurie, Spring Byington, and Martin Milner.

A light comedy about a charismatic yet aging woman who comes to live with her architect son (played by Ronald Reagan) and his family, striking up an unexpected romance with the local grocer. Things get far more complex when Reagan's boss also develops an interest in her, attempting to get between the new couple. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Sound Recording.

Green cloth, with the film's original title and Dorothy Hughes' name both in gilt on the front board and spine. Title page present, with a holograph notation of "1950" and credits for Roberts as the screenwriter. 130 pages, white pages with a few blue revision pages throughout, dated variously between 1/30/1950 and 2/30/1950. Pages Very Good or better, cloth binding Very Good plus. Nominated for both an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award. A deluxe working script, from the estate of Dorothy Hughes (not to be confused with the crime author) and her daughter Winnie Ray, both of whom worked for the Hollywood studios for over 40 years.
