Photocopied draft script for the 1953 film. Rereleased in 1977, we presume this copy to have been generated about that time. Not a vintage item, useful for content information only. By the time Paramount got around to a filming the Wells novel, the property was firmly in the hands of special-effects man George Pal. An object crash-lands near the small town of Linda Rosa. Among the onlookers is Dr. Clayton (Barry), who strikes up a friendship with Sylvia Van Buren (Robinson), the niece of a local minister. Dr. Clayton leaves three townsmen to guard the strange, glowing object. Left alone, the three men decide to approach the meteorite, and are abruptly evaporated. The hideous-looking Martians utilize huge flying ships, equipped with heat rays, to pursue helpless Earthlings. Not even an atom bomb can stop the Martian death machines.Winner of an Academy Award for Best Effects. Basis for the 1988 TV version, conceived as a direct sequel to the 1953 film. Remade in 2005 by Steven Spielberg. Tan wrappers with die-cut window in the British style. Title page present, dated 1953, with credits for screenwriter Lyndon, director Haskin, producer George Pal, and special effects company, Gordon Jennings (A.S.C.). 87 leaves, not paginated.
