[H. G. Wells.] Bert I. Gordon. Food of the Gods Screenplay - Signed by Gordon. [n.d., circa 1975].

    8.5 by 11-inch sheets. 133 pages. Signed by Gordon on the title page.

    Brad-bound into blue covers with silver stamping. Final draft of the shooting script. Primarily white pages with a few yellow pages filtered in, typically indicating rewrites. Numerous handwritten notations throughout. Better than very good condition.

    An extremely loose adaptation of H. G. Wells' Food of the Gods by writer-director Bert I. Gordon. You know you're probably not looking at Oscar material when it has notations such as "In an instant Morgan is bowled over by charging rat" and "rat suit & fixed mouth head". Gordon has the distinction of having more of his films shown on Mystery Science Theater 3000 than any other director. A fun look at B-movie filmmaking. From the Frank Collection.
