Three British Screen Plays: Brief Encounter; Odd Man Out; Scott of the Antarctic
by Manvell, Roger, ed.
London: Methuen & Co. Ltd.. Very Good in Good dj. 1950. First Edition. Hardcover. [some shelfwear to bottom edge, slight bumping to a couple of corners; jacket has a large and ragged chip at the base of the spine, a small tear and small piece missing at the upper front hinge]. (B&W photographs) Scripts for three classics: BRIEF ENCOUNTER (written by Noel Coward, based on his play); ODD MAN OUT (written by F.L. Green and R.C. Sherriff, from Green's novel); and SCOTT OF THE ANTARCTIC (an original screenplay by Walter Meade and Ivor Montagu). "Published in Association with the British Film Academy," it's a high-minded enterprise all the way: the volume includes a Foreword by Frank Launder, president of the Screenwriters' Association, and a helpful glossary of technical terminology; and each script is accompanied by full production credits and a selection of stills from the film. .
