    Henry Thomas' "Elliott" personal shooting script for "A Boy's Life": working title for E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial shooting script. Henry Thomas' "Elliott" personal shooting script for "A Boy's Life": working title for E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial shooting script. Before E.T. became a household name, Steven Spielberg's ground-breaking project had the working title: "A Boy's Life". Central to this beloved film was a boy named "Elliott" played with heartbreaking conviction by Henry Thomas. This is Thomas' personal, production-used shooting script. Consisting of a red 11.5 x 9.75 in. 3-ring binder holding 113-page multi-colored revision script. Cover page dated Aug. 21, 1981, with child-like stenciled "Top Secret /Henry Thomas /Confidential" across the page. Subsequent pages are all production stamped with "BOYS00061". In the back of the script are several loose pages of call sheets and production materials including one personal note from Drew Barrymore's mom. Two images of a Scottish Terrier are taped to the inside front cover. Pages are worm-eaten on edges throughout, but without affect to content. Exhibits heavy cover soiling and some water damage. Legible and intact but in poor condition. Includes a spare cover page with the ultimate E.T. title printed. Accompanied by a COA from Henry Thomas.
