    The Masque of the Red Death by Orson Welles personal photostat copy script. (ca. 1960s) Vintage original Orson Welles personal photostat copy of his 56-page unproduced script for The Masque of the Red Death. Written while Welles was in Europe but never filmed. Photostat was the method by which some French scripts were duplicated as opposed to American style mimeographing. The title page reads, "The following comprises two stories by Edgar Allan Poe, including a free adaptation of "The Cask of the Amontillado." The two are grouped together under the title: - The Masque of the Red Death Screenplay by Orson Welles". Brown paper covers and content all exhibit staple holes on the spine edge of the pages. Cover shows signs of age and wear. Content remains in vintage very good condition.
