SUNRISE AT CAMPOBELLO. A Presentation Script Bound in Red Leather.

n.p. Warner Bros, 1960. PRESENTATION SCRIPT. Hardcover. Marked "Final Screenplay" (April 11, 1960), 148pp. Directed by Vincent J. Donehue, with a screenplay by Dore Schary, who produced the film (and the play). The film starred Ralph Bellamy, Greer Garson, Hume Cronyn, and Ann Shoemaker. An ALS is bound in from Dore Schary to first assistant director, Russ Saunders, dated August 5, 1960, "Dear Russ / Thanks, my good friend / you were a tower of strength / and good sense / Best, Dore." Three black and white film stills are bound in, including the great one of Bellamy, clenching a cigarette in a holder, as F.D.R. This is the story of Franklin Roosevelt's bout with polio at age 39 in 1921 and how his family (especially his wife Eleanor) coped with his illness. From being stricken while vacationing at Campobello to his triumphant nominating speech for Al Smith's presidency in 1924. The story follows the various influences on his life and his determination to recover. The film was nominated for four Oscars; Best Actress, Art Direction, Sound, and Costume Design. Despite it being perhaps Bellamy's most famous role, it was Greer Garson who received the critical acclaim. She won the Golden Globe and National Board of Review Award for Best Actress. A near fine copy with minor blemishes and a few scratches. Item #13584
