    Ray Bradbury. The Martian Chronicles Unpublished Screenplay. [1964], 178 pages, 8.5" x 11", xerographic copy on coated paper bound in brads.
    This screenplay of The Martian Chronicles was written by Bradbury in 1964, and was his second stab at the script for MGM Studios. Bradbury has never been able to produce his own version of the screenplay. The 1980 NBC miniseries of The Martian Chronicles starring Rock Hudson was filmed from a script by Bradbury's friend and fellow science fiction author Richard Matheson. Bradbury was very disappointed with this film version, and apparently continues to rewrite his screenplay just in case.

    The script presented here is in fine condition, with the title page and the first few pages folded at the bottom right corner, but not to a great degree, and light overall toning to the pages. A rare treat for the Bradbury fan interested in the author's filmic vision of one of his greatest works. From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
