Breakfast of Champions

Twin Falls, ID: Sugar Creek Productions, 1998. Shooting script for the 1999 film. A deluxe working script archive belonging to actor Bob Hildreth, with his name in holograph ink at the top of the first leaf.

Noted throughout the archive is the contact information for the independent entity that produced the film before it was sold, director Alan Rudolph's Sugar Creek Productions in Twin Falls, Idaho. The production company name is a sly reference reference to the story's protagonist, Dwayne Hoover, and his toxic waste-polluted real estate venture. Archive includes a complete Cast and Crew listing with contact information, a location list, floor plans, calendar of events, oneline schedule, set map, and a complete script with pink and yellow revision pages.

Rudolph's ambitious adaptation of Vonnegut's novel is as close as any filmmaker has ever come to evoking the author's surreal vision onscreen, benefiting from the redoubtable Bruce Willis in the lead, proving yet again his versatility as an actor outside his mainstream persona. An arthouse film mis-marketed as a multiplex feature, "Breakfast of Champions" fared poorly at the box office, and remains unseen and unknown by nearly everyone apart from ardent Rudolph and Vonnegut fans.

White standard vinyl-bound ring binder with title on the spine on labelmaker tape. Photographically reproduced, with pink, yellow, and white revision pages throughout, dated variously between 2/11/98 and 2/20/98. Pages Near Fine, ring binder Very Good plus with some wrinkle to the clear plastic sleeve.
