    Laurel and Hardy Vintage Script. Dated August 13, 1928, this is a vault copy of an eight-page script for the title sheets to the short "Habeus Corpus," starring Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. It was originally made as a silent film, then retrofitted before release with a music track and sound effects. Unfortunately, the sound discs are long lost, but "Habeus Corpus" is technically the duo's first sound film. In great condition with some mild uniform tanning of the pages and some chipping along the right edge of the holder, which also has a fold crease along the bottom edge.
