Clash of the Titans

Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM] / Charles H. Schneer Productions / Peerford, 1981. Final Revised Draft script for the 1981 film. British script for the US-UK co-production, with the address of UK production company Peerford on the title page.

The final film to feature creature design and visual effects by pioneering stop motion animator Ray Harryhausen, a fitting send off to both him and special effects techniques that stretch back through film history to "King Kong" (1933), "The Lost World" (1925), and beyond, but had already been eclipsed in the public imagination by the digital effects of "Star Wars" four years earlier. Based loosely on the Greek myth of Perseus and Andromeda. Remade in 2010, without any of the charm of the original.

Set in Ancient Greece, shot on location in the UK, Spain, Italy, and Malta.

Blue wrappers, with title window die-cut in the British style. Title page present, noted as Final Revised Draft, with credits for screenwriter Beverly Cross. 133 leaves, with last page of text numbered 130. Xerographically reproduced. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Near Fine bound internally with two silver brads.
