Film Scripts Online

Alternative Name:   American Film Scripts
Type:   Manuscripts
Description:   The Film Scripts Online Series (formerly American Film Scripts) contains over 1,100 scripts and makes available, for the first time, accurate and authorized versions of copyrighted screenplays. Researchers can compare the writer’s vision with the producer’s and director’s interpretations from page to screen.
Coverage:   Most scripts in the series have never been published before and are available nowhere else. Alexander Street developed the collection through arrangements with Warner Bros., Sony, RKO, MGM, and other major film studios; rights holders such as Faber & Faber, Newmarket Press, Penguin Putnam, StudioCanal, and Vintage Anchor; and the writers themselves, including Paul Schrader, Lawrence Kasdan, Gus Van Sant, Neil LaBute, Oliver Stone, and many others.
