Don't Bury Me At All

New York: William Morris Agency, Circa 1950. Treatment script for an unproduced film called "Don't Bury Me At All," written by Robert Penn Warren and Max Shulman. An unusual collaboration between screenwriter Max Shulman ("The Affairs of Dobie Gillis," 1953) and Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Robert Penn Warren.

A cursory look at the script leads us to believe the film would have been set in Chicago just after the Civil War, where three Kentuckians have settled, one of whom has devoted his life to financial steamrolling and greed until faced with the inevitable at his sickbed.

Gray titled wrappers, with credits for Warren and Shulman, as well as the William Morris Agency. Title page present, noted as "An Original Story for the Screen," with credits for Warren and Shulman. 29 leaves, mimeograph duplication. Pages and wrapper Near Fine, side-stapled.
