A script from the production of Mel Stuart's fantasy musical Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. This script was issued to the credited construction manager Hendrik G. Wynands and originally came from his personal collection.
The brown card cover features the original title "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,'" and Wynands' name is handwritten at the top. He later inscribed "uncompleted first draft script" on the front, as approximately 40 pages were removed during filming. It comprises 66 pages printed single-sided on US Letter paper and features many scenes that differ from the film's final cut. The script exhibits discolouration and wear on the cover, while one page is loose and displays tape remnants from previously being reattached. Dimensions: 28 cm x 21.5 cm x 1 cm (11" x 8½" x½")
Estimate: £400 - 600 M
This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.
