The Man Who Could Hypnotize Racehorses

N.p., circa 1955. Original film treatment by Robin Maugham, which made up part of the screenplay for an unproduced film called "The Speaker's Corner." Very Good in original mauve titled wrappers, string-bound, with a typed label crediting Robin Maugham on the front panel. Fore-edge of the front panel is chipped, pages are evenly (but only slightly) toned, and there is some wear around the hole-punches used to hold the string binding.

The only other copy located is in the Harry Ransom Center film library at the University of Texas, and the notes from that collection read: "'The Speaker's Corner' is a screenplay based on three stories by Maugham, including 'Broken Cellophane,' 'The Prodigal Son,' and 'The Man Who Could Hypnotize Racehorses.' Maugham worked with Rodney Ackland on the adaptation." From the collection of British film director and editor Peter Hunt, presumably one of only a handful of copies made.
