BRIGHT LIGHTS, BIG CITY BASED ON THE NOVEL BY ...
1987 · New York
by McInerney, Jay [sourcework & screenwriter]
New York: Mirage Productions, 1987. ,144 leaves plus lettered revised inserts and three copies of the six leaf staff & crew list bound in back. Quarto. Mechanically reproduced typescript, printed on rectos only of white, blue and salmon stock. Bradbound in plain wrappers. Ink name (see below), upper wrapper and title leaf a bit dusty and frayed, some inking to the spine, but otherwise a very good copy. Denoted the "First Draft New Version," but in fact heavily revised by an array of inserted dated revises on variously colored stocks. This new version is the script credited to McInerney for the adaptation of his first novel, undertaken for director Jim Bridges. An earlier draft, attributed to Tom Cole, appears to have been superseded by this new version when Bridges assumed the position of director. This is copy #42 of the script, designated for sound mixer Les Lazarowitz, and was utilized by him in the production. The 1988 release starred Michael J. Fox, Kiefer Sutherland, and Phoebe Cates.
