Pete Townshend and The Who; Ken Russell: [Typed Shooting Script.] "Tommy". A Rock Opera by PETER TOWNSHEND and THE WHO. Screenplay by KEN RUSSELL.
8th April 1974. [Printed by Scripts Limited, 8 Gerrard Street, London, W.1.] Professionally produced typescript, consisting of 69 leaves (dimensions 27.5 x 22 cm) in red card wraps. Good, in lightly faded wraps (numbered '42' on front), with slight wear to top inner corner of first leaf (not affecting text). Text on one side only of each leaf. Title-leaf followed by page with 'NOTE', and 66 paginated pages of script, and final leaf bearing the printer's colophon in red. Divided into 127 sections, with each page in two columns: 'ACTION' (Russell's detailed directions) on the left, and 'MUSIC' (i.e. libretto) on the right. As an example of Russell's 'action', the first section ("Prologue 1945", 1 Ext. Mountain Top Day) reads 'The screen is brilliant, flaming orange. The CAMERA pulls back to reveal a giant sun sinking rapidly towards a distant craggy horizon and the silhouette of a MAN standing on a mountain top in the foreground. Soon another shape, that of a WOMAN, climbs up to join him. Hand in hand they gaze at the glowing orb, awed by its splendour. Slowly they turn towards each other and the CAMERA moves in to reveal a handsome MAN and a pretty WOMAN in their mid-twenties, obviously very much in love. They kiss tenderly and sink out of frame onto the ground, leaving the suns sinking blood red beneath the distant horizon. In the gathering twilight the CAMERA tilts down to show the COUPLE lying blissfully in each other's arms.' Pete Townshend received an Oscar nomination for his work in scoring and adapting the music for the film. (Book ref. 6085) £450.00
