Los Angeles: National General Pictures, 1969. Final shooting script for the 1970 film, "Darker than Amber," based on the 1966 novel by John D. MacDonald, featuring his series character Travis McGee. Written for the screen by Ed Waters and starring Rod Taylor and Theodore Bikel. Boldly SIGNED by Rod Taylor on the front wrapper.
Notable as the only feature film adaptation of MacDonald's wildly popular Travis McGee series, long unavailable on any kind of viewing format. Professional beach bum and 'knight errant' Travis McGee goes up against psychotic body-builder Terry Bartell. McGee pulls out all the stops when he joins a Carribean cruise to bring the killer to justice.
Red titled wrappers, with credits for screenwriter Waters and novelist MacDonald, marked "FINAL" and dated 28 Jan. 1969. 114 pages, all white. Pages and wrapper both in Fine condition. A fresh copy of an extremely scarce MacDonald item.
