Who Killed Bambi?

N.p. Matrixbest production, 1977. Seventh Draft script for an unproduced film. Holograph signature and copy number 80 in black marker by production designer John Beard on the title page. Beard is best known for his work on "Brazil" (1985), "The Meaning of Life" (1983), "Bad Timing" (1980), and "Life of Brian" (1979).

A fabled project helmed by Russ Meyer, along with then-screenwriter Roger Ebert (who penned "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" in 1970), that was to have been a vehicle for the Sex Pistols, who in 1977 were in their prime. Roger Ebert's involvement ended with the second draft, and revisions by Meyer and Malcolm McLaren continued until at least this draft.

Ebert's first draft is available online at his website, but apart from that we have seen no others, and certainly not this extensively rewritten version.

Forest green textured wrappers with a die-cut title window in the British style. Title page present, dated 1977 and noted as Seventh Draft. 153 leaves, with last page of text numbered 145. Photographically reproduced, rectos only. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Near Fine, bound internally with two silver brads.
