Vile Bodies

N.p. N.p. 1975. An unproduced British draft script for the "Vile Bodies," based on the 1930 novel by Evelyn Waugh and written for the screen by John Wells. Assembled mostly from mechanically-reproduced leaves, with two leaves (pp. 138-139) being ribbon copies. Written as a screenplay, with dialogue and location information, but lacking camera direction, typical of a draft that is past the treatment stage but prior to the advanced draft screenplay stage. This would appear to have no relation to the later, produced adaptation of the same novel, director Stephen Fry's "Bright Young Things" (2003).

Pink wrappers with a die-cut window in the British style. Title page present, with a date of September 1975 and credits for novelist Waugh and screenwriter Wells. 167 leaves,. Pages Very Good plus, wrapper Very Good with light wear and yapping at the edges, bound with two flat silver brads.
