    Marian Marsh Assorted Scripts, including "Pride and Prejudice." These scripts from Marian Marsh's personal collection present a mystery: she was in all the films but one, Pride and Prejudice, one of MGM's major releases of 1940. Presumably Marian was a candidate for one of the major roles, but lost out in this film that starred Greer Garson and Laurence Olivier. She came close enough to have received a compete copy of the December 27, 1939 script, credited to Jane Murfin and Aldous Huxley, and bearing the "Please return to Script Dept." label, with MGM's Leo the Lion logo. (Obviously, a disappointed Marian defied this directive!) The scripts for films in which she did star are The Sport Parade (1932), Girl of the Limberlost (1934, with annotations), Prodigal Son (1935, made in Germany, her eight typed dialogue pages in German and annotated), Missing Daughters (two copies, 1939), and Gentleman from Dixie (1941, annotated). One of the scripts for Missing Daughters has Marian's bold fountain ink signature on the cover. The scripts are in Good to Very Good condition. From the Marian Marsh Archive.
