Los Angeles: Paramount, 1967. Final Script for the 1968 film, "No Way to Treat a Lady," based on the 1964 novel by William Goldman, written for the screen by John Gay, and starring Rod Steiger, Lee Remick, and George Segal.
One of the best unsung crime films of the 1960s, wherein Rod Steiger was given an opportunity for a field day as a serial killer who is a master of disguise; one of the few later roles he didn't overplay, and one of Segal's best performances as well. One of many fine adaptations of novels by William Goldman (Marathon Man, The Princess Bride), who was also a very successful screenwriter.
