Friendly Fire
(n.p.), (Marble Arch), (1979). Dialogue continuity script for Kanin's television screenplay based on C.D.B. Bryan's 1976 nonfiction book. Friendly Fire chronicles the radicalization of a patriotic Midwestern family after their son is killed by "friendly" (i.e., U.S.) fire, and they try to get the details from a balky government, seemingly more interested in protecting those responsible than in honoring the dead. An important book, and film, for depicting the tide of mainstream political opinion in the U.S. turning against the war effort in Vietnam. Claspbound photocopied sheets; first page creased, otherwise near fine. [#035691] $175
