Important Added Info: Note that this script is from February 19, 1932 and the screenplay was written by Nina Wilcox Putnam & Richard Schayer, both of whom are credited on the one-sheet poster. Note that this very first script was commissioned by Carl Laemmle Jr., but it was drastically changed when John Balderstons wrote a screenplay from it, and it has the working titles "Cagliostro" and "King of the Dead" on the cover, but by the time the movie was released in the autumn of 1932, it was now called "The Mummy". Our consignor purchased this early version of the script from The Mummy from a book seller who purchased it from the late John McLaughlin, a legendary collector of all sorts of memorabilia!

Condition: good. The script was created on long outdated yellow "onionskin" paper, which is quite thin. It has a brown paper coversheet, and also a brown paper back coversheet. The coversheet is tattered around the edges, with paper loss and separated from the brads that hold the script together. The blank back coversheet has a lesser amount of paper loss, but both brown sheets are quite fragile. The first yellow page is also separated and has some tears around the edges. The other yellow pages are in pretty good condition (see our images). But please bear in mind that the front and back cover sheets are quite fragile when you bid on this script.
