Final draft script for an unproduced 1976 Universal film. Also laid in is an interoffice memo from Murray Weissman to Marshall Green, CC'd to a large number of crewmembers including PR manager Kenny Carter, that emphasizes the need to keep photography on the set very tightly controlled.With both major studios developing a Kong movie simultaneously, Paramount and producer Dino De Laurentis successfully sued Universal to prevent them from making their rendition of the film, arguing that Paramount alone had rights to the story. Although Universal agreed to set aside their plans for "King Kong" for at least six months, the project would not be picked up again until 1996, when Peter Jackson would scrap Bo Goldman's script in favor of his own. Goldman won an Academy Award for his work on the 1975 Milos Forman adaptation of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" starring Jack Nicholson, and later wrote the 1992 film "Scent of a Woman," and 1998 film "Meet Joe Black." Though not without the occasional bias, we refrain from speculation as to which of the scripts may have had the most cinematic merit.
