40th Academy Awards TV Broadcast (1968)

Original Script


This is an amazing find…a 56 year old script from the March 29, 1968 TV broadcast of the Academy Awards. The name “Mort” is printed on the front, so we are assuming this was used by writer Mort Lachman. Mort made several notes/changes/strike-outs throughout the 146 pages of this script.

Condition: Good to Very Good – Production used – With handwritten notations and some minor water staining on the lower edge of some of the pages.

Please check the included image(s) closely to assist you in your purchasing decision.
