Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1971. Shooting script for the 1972 film. Actor William Redfield's working copy, housed in a black spring binder, with his name in red manuscript ink on a label affixed on the front board, his name and address on the front pastedown, and profuse annotations on the title page, pertaining to the motivations of his character, the luckless New York police lieutenant Hoover.

One of the most engaging and hilarious crime films of the early 1970s, a cat-and-mouse heist film in which Redfield played the foil to Robert Redford. A bright gathering of the New Hollywood Cinema's finest, including Redford, director Peter Yates, novelist Donald Westlake, and screenwriter William Goldman. Winner of the Edgar Award for Best Picture.
