Drop Dead, Dearest [I Miss You Hugs and Kisses]

Canada: Paradise Films Limited, 1977. Shooting script for the 1978 Canadian film, "Drop Dead, Dearest," here under an alternate title, "I Miss You Hugs and Kisses." Brief annotations in holograph ink on two pages.

Shot in flashback scenarios, a beautiful model (Sommer) is murdered and left for dead in her garage, and the key suspect is the person who discovered her dead: her husband, Charles (Pilon).

Shot on location in Ontario. One of the non-prosecuted films included in the "Video Nasties" list, a collection of video cassette releases distributed in the United Kingdom in the 1980s that were criticized for their violent content by social commentators, religious organizations, and the press. The list is composed of over 70 films (39 prosecuted, 33 non-prosecuted), but Video Nasties would inevitably become an antiquated genre.

Red titled wrappers. Title page present, dated April 25, 1977, noted as SHOOTING SCRIPT, with credits for screenwriter Woods and Markowitz. 121 leaves, with last page of text numbered 119. Mechanical duplication. Pages and wrapper Near Fine, bound with a black Vello binding.
