The Devil in the Flesh

N.p. N.p., 1979. Revised Final Draft script for an unproduced film. Laid in are two additional half sheets of paper. Copy belonging to casting director Marvin Paige, with his name on label tape, adhered on the front wrapper.

Based on Raymond Radiguet's novel "Le Diable au corps," this unpublished novel features a young married woman with a husband away fighting a war and her affair with a sixteen year old boy. Published in France, it was incredibly scandalous, especially as it was published after France had exited World War I and the novel was proven later to be partly autobiographical. Two movies, one in 1947 and another in 1986, were produced based on this book, and despite being written, this screenplay was never adapted for full production.

Thomas Thompson was a screenwriter best known for his extensive work writing and producing episodes of the television series "Bonanza," which ran from 1959 until 1969.

Set in France.
