Planet of the Apes. Final Revised Screenplay.

Apjac Productions for Twentieth Century-Fox, (1967). 144 pages, Mimeographed on eye-rest green paper, brad-bound in mimeographed orange wrappers. "Final Revised Screenplay", dated on the cover April 18, 1967, with two blue revised pages dated 4/20 and 4/24. The cover is also marked with the legend "Confidential. Please do not reveal the contents of this script." A rare copy of this late revision, complete with the surprise ending, which was kept secret and not included in most copies of the script. Rod Serling (The Twilight Zone) and Michael Wilson received credit for the screenplay which Serling adapted from Pierre Boulle's novel. Wilson had been been blacklisted in the 1950s for being a communist and was only belatedly credited for some of his most important work (e.g. Friendly Persuasion (1956), and The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957), like Planet of the Apes adapted from a Pierre Boulle novel). Some pen marks on the first page, fine. Item #28792
