Does anyone have $3500 to give me? I would like to get the script of Fort Apache now on ebay. :)

Wow! I would love read an early draft of a Nugent/Ford script to see how much was changed/eliminated once it got in the can.

The Wagon Master script is published (RKO Screen Classics) -- but there are LOTS of changes between script and screen. Fascinating to read.
