Los Angeles: Samuel L. Bronkowitz, 1977. Shooting script for the 1977 film. Working copy belonging to producer Robert K. Weiss, with his ownership name in holograph orange ink at the top right corner of the front wrapper. Photocopied annotations throughout.

Written by and starring the Zucker brothers, the duo who would eventually make their fame with similarly irreverent comedy hits like "Airplane!" (1980), "Top Secret!" (1984), and "The Naked Gun" series, this film was also Landis' second film as director, his first being "Schlock" (1973). Because of his work on the film, Landis would go on to direct the cult classic "National Lampoon's Animal House" (1978), at the suggestion of several members from the cast of comedy troupes, The Groundlings and The Second City.

Spoofs and comedy skits including a Kung-Fu parody, Catholic school girls, "Feel-A-Round" futuristic movie theaters, and segue news shows. Several sketches not included in the final cut are present in the script, including "Slapstick," "Mark VI," "Pocket Fisherman," "Sherlette Chromatic," "Jacques Boosteau," "Alpha 2," "Miracle Cup," and more.
