Be My Guest [Be My Guest]

London: Three Kings Films, 1964. Draft script for the 1965 film. With several substantive holograph emendations to dialogue throughout.

A British "teen" comedy, with a title that borrows the title (and spirit) of Conrad Hilton's 1957 autobiography. A family inherits a seaside hotel and has trouble filling it up until their son's rock group begins bringing in the crowds. One of several British films from the mid-sixties which offered the added inducement of a guest appearance by "The Killer," Jerry Lee Lewis (who had more success in the UK than the USA after marrying his teenage cousin in 1958).

Magenta titled wrappers with a die-cut title window in the British style. Title page present, dated 6-11-64 in holograph pencil, with credits for screenwriter and composer Fairhurst. 108 leaves, mechanical duplication on eye-rest green stock, with pink revision pages throughout, dated 23.11.64.
