The Cider House Rules
(n.p.), Garp Enterprises/Radio-Telegraphic Company, 1991. A very early draft of the screenplay that won Irving an Academy Award for best adapted screenplay, based on his sixth novel. Signed by Irving. This is the earliest copy of the script we have seen: the film was released in 1999; this version is dated "June 14, 1991, Revised." Hand-numbered "42." There are substantial textual differences between this early version and the final version. 130 pages, stringbound, with one remaining brad. Foxing to pages; near fine. A glimpse of an award-winning script as a work in progress. [#029480] $3,500
