A production-used script from Richard Lester’s superhero sequel Superman II. Originally filmed alongside Superman under the direction of Richard Donner, the studio feared Donner’s vision was too dark for the character, and Donner was replaced with Lester by producers Alexander and Ilya Salkind. This second-draft script utilised already-filmed scenes and new ones added by writers David and Leslie Newman.
Bound in brown card with metal fastenings, the 140-page script is printed on white A4 paper. The cover features a cut-out window revealing the film’s title on the first page. Printed lines cross through scenes that had already been shot. Worn from use, the script shows creases, minor stains and wear to the card cover. Dimensions: 30.5 cm x 21.5 cm x 2 cm (12″ x 8 1/2″ x 3/4″)
Estimate: £300 – £500
