The Full Monty is available from Cinestore in Sydney: http://www.cinestore.com.au/ It is not published under an imprint as such. Cinestore's scripts are generally (AUST) $25, and most commonly come in unbound, photocopied form, packaged in plastic. In the majority of cases, they contain the original title page so it is possible to determine which draft of the script you have in your hands. Not all Cinestore's screenplays are final drafts, and indeed, it is sometimes very difficult to determine how many drafts a screenplay might have gone through to the point of production. Thus, scripts available through the net are even more unreliable in terms of their usefulness for serious research purposes. So called "published" scripts are similarly unreliable and are sometimes "fine-tuned" after the film has been made before they go to press. Morevoer, the formatting is invariably changed to make the screenplays more "readable". Rare exceptions to this have been the two volumes of Preston Sturges screenplays (UC), and "Sex Lies and Videotape" - sorry, I don't have the details on me - but Steven Soderbergh was generous enough to allow plates to be taken from his final shooting draft - typos and all. The bottom line is that nobody can really be sure that any draft they have in their hand is the actual shooting script unless they can verify it against the "marked up" script, i.e., the script which is "marked up" (with shots), by the continuity person on set at the time the film is being shot. In Australia at least,marked up scripts are generally kept and archived with the editor's materials - trims etc. In my view the marked up script is very much neglected primary source, given that it indicates what the director has actually shot, including amendments "on the day", as opposed to what the editor finally selects. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Harry Kirchner La Trobe University Melbourne, Australia Tel: 613.9497.3512 (w) Tel: 613.9489.1552 (h) Fax: 613.9479 3638 email (alt): [log in to unmask] "Scrrening the Past" An electronic journal of visual Media and History http://www.latrobe.edu.au/www/screeningthepast/ "Australian Writers Guild" Official Website http:/www.ozemail.com.au/~awgsyd/ "Screenwriting in Australia" A new Screenwriting Book http://www.latrobe.edu.au/www/artmedia/screenoz.html La Trobe University Media Studies http://www.latrobe.edu.au/www/artmedia/MediaHome.html ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ---- Screen-L is sponsored by the Telecommunication & Film Dept., the University of Alabama.
