A revised draft script from the production of Ridley Scott's sci-fi horror Alien. Bound in blue card with split pins, this production-used script is dated "March '78" and is credited to Ronald Shusett (story), Dan O'Bannon (screenplay and story) and producers Walter Hill and David Giler (rewrites).
There are 101 unannotated pages, including the title page, printed single-sided on A4 paper. The script features many scenes that didn't appear in the film's original theatrical cut, including Dallas (Tom Skerritt) being cocooned by the Alien in the bowels of the ship; expanded scenes involving Ash (Ian Holm); and another, earlier attempt at flushing the alien out of the airlock. The script shows some signs of wear from production use and age, including some minor scuffing on the cover and rust around the split pins. Dimensions: 30 cm x 21.5 cm x 1.5 cm (11 3/4" x 8 1/2" x 1/2")
Estimate: £800 - 1,200 †Δ
