London: Performing Arts Ltd, 1969. Final Draft script for the 1970 film.

Director Silvio Narizzano's broad, frenetic, and cheeky adaptation of Joe Orton's viscously farcical 1965 play, wherein two gay lovers, Hal and Dennis, successfully rob a bank and stash the loot in Hal's mother's coffin in the funeral parlor next door. A decidedly queer spin on popular 1960s British satires such as Beyond the Fringe and Private Eye.

Based on the 1965 play by Joe Orton. Nominated for the Palme d'Or.

Shot on location in East Sussex, England.

Orange untitled wrappers with die-cut windows in the British fashion. Title page present, noted as Final Draft, with credits for screenwriters Ray Galton and Alan Simpson and playwright Joe Orton. 140 leaves, with last page of text numbered 129.
