    An Early Draft of the Screenplay for Blade Runner

    Hampton Fancher. Blade Runner. Hollywood: July 24, 1980. Early draft (done by Fancher before David Webb Peoples contributed). Quarto. Approximately 11 x 8.5 inches. On plain white paper. 110 leaves. Printed copy, rectos only. Bound in thin red plastic wraps via screws. "Blade Runner" written in black ink on spine. Minor rubbing, some toning to edges. Still, fine.
    An earlier draft, quite different from the final screenplay. Perhaps the greatest difference is that at the end of this version, Deckard kills Rachel rather than escapes Los Angeles with her. From his final voice over in this draft: "I told myself over and over again, if I hadn't done it, they would have. I didn't go back to the city, not that city, I didn't want the job. She said the great advantage of being alive was to have a choice. And she chose. And a part of me was almost glad. Not because she was gone but because this way they could never touch her..."
