Our Miss Brooks

Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1955. Final shooting script for the 1956 film, based on the radio and television series of the same name. Producer David Weisbart's bound presentation copy, including a staff and cast list with contact phone numbers and a page describing the central characters in detail.

The film version of "Our Miss Brooks" capped several years of a very successful run with the same character, at first on the radio (1948-1955), then on television (1952-1955), with Eve Arden starring as the title character in nearly all its episodes. Arden's "Miss Brooks" is an English teacher at a midwest high school, an interestingly feminist character stuck in the mid-1950s, who remains steadfastly single but is still charming and with a barbed wit, placing the control of her classroom ahead of all things--though she does secretly pine for the biology teacher Mr. Boynton.

Red leather with raised bands, gilt design, titles, and rule. Title page present, with credits for screenwriters Lewis and Quillan, dated 7/20/55 (script pages are all individually dated 7/20/55 as well). 104 leaves, mimeograph, Pages and binding Near Fine, with a few small, faint stains to the latter.
