Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1975. Draft script for the 1976 film. SIGNED by starring actress Faye Dunaway, and cinematographer Owen Roizman, on the front cover in holograph ink.
A highspot among director Sidney Lumet's many cinematic achievements, with an original screenplay written by Paddy Chayevsky and a host of major actors all working at the peak of their powers. A savage and very entertaining indictment of American television culture in the mid-1970s, portraying an overemphasis placed on newscasts to achieve higher ratings, and a powerful commentary about global media conglomerates.
Winner of 4 Academy Awards, and nominated for 6 others.
Set in New York, shot on location in Canada and New York.
