    A William Holden Script from "Network," 1976. Sidney Lumet and Paddy Chayefsky's brilliant satire of the media featured William Holden in perhaps his greatest performance of the latter part of his career, one that earned him his third Academy Award nomination for Best Actor. This is Holden's personal copy of a 148-page unspecified draft of the script, undated but with 21 blue revision pages dated 12/31/75. Page 39 bears a few slight dialogue alterations by Holden in ink; otherwise, it is free of annotations. The script is in Very Fine condition with moderate wear to the cover but solid binding and great page quality. It is accompanied by a b&w 8" x 10" photo of a press conference with key cast and crew members, as well as a vintage "For Your Consideration" promo brochure for the film. A portion of the proceeds to be donated to the William Holden Wildlife Foundation.
