    Orson Welles "It's All True, Love Story - 1st Draft Continuity" Script (1941). First draft of the script for Orson Welles' unfinished feature film, 8.5" x 11", 55 pages, August 8, 1941. The film was meant to be a documentary/docufiction, split into four parts. Welles began the project in July 1941, and "Love Story" was an immigrant love story written by John Fante (based on his own parents). However, midway through production, RKO Pictures went through a management overhaul and the studio refused to continue funding the film. A documentary was made in 1993 about the unfinished film, which includes footage from the first three parts of the film. Sadly, nothing was ever shot for "Love Story". Very Good Minus condition, with light staining to cover and chipping at edges.
