    The Wizard of Oz complete shooting script. (MGM, 1939) Vintage original complete studio bound and bradded on set shooting script for the beloved fantasy film. 122- multi-color revision pages written by Noel Langley. Various dates beginning October 10, 1938 (2-days before shooting began) and continuing through March 3, 1939 indicating all the changes incorporated during the film's progress, each and every change dated and notated and each group of changed pages with holograph or rubberstamped dates noting when they were received. Original yellow paper studio front cover with script department number "84160" stamped in blue and holograph date "10/10/38". White cast page, Foreword page and original text pages with rewrite pages on pink paper. Very rare. Not to be confused with the numerous pre-production scripts (exhibiting pale blue title page), nor the cutting and continuity scripts, which were generated months later. Neither the pre-production nor post-production scripts compare to this shooting script in rarity as they were never subjected to the attrition encountered by scripts like this one that were actually used during the making of the film and taken apart and reassembled to collate each change that was made. A rare log, in pencil, on the inside cover contemporaneously tracks each and every page that was changed throughout the principle shooting and a few of the pages that were meant to be discarded, remain here, uncancelled. A relic from the pinnacle of American cinema and culture and a screenplay of matchless significance, legendary rarity. Housed in a custom made half morocco, emerald cloth and board slipcase with gold gilt title embossed on the spine. Exhibiting minor age and wear. Rare in any state. In vintage production used fine condition.
