New York: Cannon Films, Circa 1983. Draft script for the 1987 film. With copied handwritten annotations on the title page dating the script April 16, 1983, and hole shadows throughout, but made from a master, with machine hole punches and studio wrappers, thus made for use during production. Laid in with the script are two xerographically duplicated letters—one from Cannon Films chairman Menahem Golan, addressing actor Charles Bronson's potential casting in the film, and one from a reader at the Paul Kohner Agency, summarizing the film and providing commentary for Bronson's perusal.

Two narcotics cops realize there must be a mole in their department after a series of failed undercover operations, and are soon led to believe their own captain might be to blame.

Shot on location in Los Angeles.

Blue generic Cannon Films wrappers. Title page present, with credits for screenwriter Gail Morgan Hickman. 124 leaves, with last page of text numbered 123. Xerographic duplication, rectos only. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Very Good plus, bound internally with two gold brads.

Cannon, p. 115.
