A clapperboard and script from Ridley Scott's Academy Award-winning historical drama Gladiator. Roman general Maximus (Russell Crowe) was framed by Emperor Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix) and forced into slavery, which caused him to begin his quest for revenge.
This lot consists of a wood, plastic and metal clapperboard with magnets inserted into the wooden sections. It features black-and-white lettering that reads "'GLADIATOR' Director RIDLEY SCOTT Camera JOHN MATHIESON." Also included is a paper cover-bound undated copy of the film's screenplay, likely created for awards consideration or as a studio library copy. This double-sided, 60-page script features 120 pages of content and is credited on the front cover as "Story by David Franzoni Written by David Franzoni and John Logan and Bill Nicholson." This lot is in excellent overall condition with someminor wear and staining on the script.
Dimensions: (largest) 11" x 9 1/2" x 1 1/2" (28 cm x 24.25 cm x 3.75 cm); (smallest): 11" x 8 3/4" x 1/2" (28 cm x 22.25 cm x 9.5 cm)
