    Marian Marsh Film and Radio Scripts. Marian Marsh saved her scripts, even for the films she opted not to appear in. This lot includes the scripts for Counterfeit (Columbia, 1936); Marian has signed the cover in green ink "Miss Marsh", adding her character's name of "Verna"; The Barrier (Paramount, 1937), in which Jean Parker apparently replaced Marian in the female leading role; and She Didn't Want a Sheik (aka The Sheik Steps Out, 1937), in which Lola Lane replaced Marian as the female lead. Also included is a script for a 1937 radio interview show Marian performed with Tom Brown, hosted by writer and radio personality Elza Schallert; and the script for the June 19, 1938 Woodbury's Hollywood Playhouse episode "In Love and How," in which Marian co-starred with Tyrone Power and Mary Astor. Finally there are two curiosities: a script for Screen Stars Reveal Secrets of Film Make-up that bears Carole Lombard's name, and a few pages from the screenplay for Dante's Inferno. In overall Very Good to Fine condition.
