If requested I will provide the document's measurements. Please view all of the pictures above carefully. Charles Gordon MacArthur (November 5, 1895 - April 21, 1956) was an American playwright, screenwriter and 1935 winner of the Academy Award for Best Story.

MacArthur was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the sixth of seven children of stern evangelist William Telfer MacArthur and Georgiana Welsted MacArthur. He early developed a passion for reading. Declining to follow his father into ministry, he moved to the Midwest and soon became a successful reporter in Chicago, working for the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Daily News. MacArthur joined the United States Army for World War I, and served in France as a private assigned to Battery F, 149th Field Artillery, a unit of the 42nd Division. He recounted his wartime experience in 1919's A Bug's-Eye View of the War.

After the war, he wrote several short stories, two of which, "Hang It All" (1921) and "Rope" (1923), were published in H. Mencken's The Smart Set magazine. Eventually he settled in New York City, where he turned to playwriting.

MacArthur is best known for his plays in collaboration with Ben Hecht, Ladies and Gentlemen (filmed as Perfect Strangers), Twentieth Century and the frequently filmed The Front Page, which was based in part on MacArthur's experiences at the City News Bureau of Chicago. MacArthur also co-wrote, with Edward Sheldon, the play Lulu Belle, which was staged in 1926 by David Belasco. MacArthur was friends with members of the Algonquin Round Table.

He shared an apartment with Robert Benchley and had an affair with Dorothy Parker. His second marriage was to the stage and screen actress Helen Hayes, from 1928 until his death. They lived in Nyack, New York.

He was preceded in death by his daughter, Mary, who died of polio in 1949 at the age of 19. The shock of her death hastened MacArthur's own, according to those who knew him.

We also carry scripts used in Television, Broadway, Radio and other forms of entertainment. Every script that we own was hand-picked one at a time over the many years of which we have been collecting. A lot of people, new to collecting, are confused about the word Original.

" In terms of movie scripts, the term "Original means that it was used by the production company in the early stages of production or that it was issued out to the cast and crew members during filming, and used at the time of production. Any scripts printed or used in any fashion after filming has completed are known as either a reproduction or a post-production script.

These two types of scripts are much less valuable and desirable. All of our scripts are Original.. An original movie script has a lot of character in the item itself and every one of them is different in some way or another. There is usually only one script given to each crew member during production, however, sometimes they do get more than one.

This makes original movie scripts very desirable because of how scarce they are. Any changes made to the screenplay during production are known as revisions and these revision pages are inserted into that one script that was issued out to them. For example, if we are talking about a low-budget film with a small cast and only a few crew members, there are actually only a small number of scripts in existence around the world for that film. This aspect of collecting makes it fun but also difficult because there may be a certain writer or director that you love to collect and there may only be a handful of movie scripts that still exist from that specific film that you are looking for. We have some of the rarest movie scripts in the world.

Each film project has a different total number of scripts that are issued.
