I Never Promised You a Rose Garden

Los Angeles: New World Pictures, 1975. Early Draft script for the 1977 film, issued roughly two years before the film's release. Accompanied by a typed letter signed from a woman at the Paul Kohner agency to actress Maria Schneider. Based on the 1964 novel by Joanne Greenberg, written under the pseudonym Hannah Green.

One of the great unsung literary adaptations of the 1970s, taking a terrifically complex novel about a young woman who has completely retreated into fantasy following the death of her sister. A film that suffered inevitable comparisons to "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," but actually far more internal and horrific, an actor's film brought to life by Bibi Andersson and a young Kathleen Quinlan. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Screenplay.

Tan titled wrappers with a die-cut title window. Title page present, with credits for novelist Green and screenwriter Mann. 102 leaves, mechanically reproduced. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Near Fine bound internally with three gold brads.
