Hollywood: Roger Corman Productions, Circa 1957. Draft script for the 1957 film. Copy belonging to actor Dick Miller, who had a sizable role in the film, with his name to the title page, and his holograph pencil and ink annotations throughout.
The finished film runs a little over an hour, so the script, at 127 pages, was cut down substantially in the filming and editing process, leaving a remarkable amount of content for study.
An alienated, wealthy coed at an all-girls boarding school inflicts increasing cruelties on the other students, until her manipulation goes too far. An early role for Miller, who appeared in 14 films directed by legendary independent filmmaker Roger Corman between 1955 and 1961, and would continue to work with Corman throughout his career.
Brown titled wrappers. Title page present, undated, with credits for screenwriter Ed Waters. 128 leaves, with last page of text numbered 127. Mimeograph duplication, rectos only. Pages and wrapper Near Fine, bound internally with three silver brads.
