    The Fixer (Original screenplay for the 1968 film) by Frankenheimer, John (director); Dalton Trumbo (screenwriter); Alan Bates, Dirk Bogarde, Georgia Brown, Hugh Griffith (starring)

    Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1967. Draft script for the 1968 British film. Based on Bernard Malamud's 1966 Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-winning novel. Set in Czarist Russia, Frankeheimer's adaptation is a brutal realization of Malamud's novel, wherein a poor Jew named Yakov Bok assumes the identity of a Gentile after moving from the country to Kiev, in order to secure a job working for a drunken anti-Semite. When Bok is wrongfully accused of murder, he must go to prison to avoid stigmatizing the entire Jewish community. Alan Bates was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of Bok. By 1960, the blacklisted Trumbo (one of the Hollywood Ten) began to receive credit for his work in Hollywood, after serving time in a federal penitentiary for his conviction in the House Un-American Committee hearings to impugn possible Communists in the US. Shot on location in Hungary. Light blue titled wrappers, dated September 7, 1967, with a credit for screenwriter Trumbo. 138 leaves, with least leaf of text numbered 129. Mechanically and photographically reproduced, dated variously between 9/6/67 and 9/7/67, with a revision page dated 8/7/67. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Very Good plus, bound with two gold brads.
