While you may not be able to stream classic films like Casablanca, Ben-Hur, An American in Paris and North by Northwest on your iPad, Kindle or Nook, soon enough you will be able to read the original scripts. Warner Brothers Digital Distribution is reportedly releasing the screenplays of these films as eBooks.
The Wall Street Journal has more:
Each e-book title will retail for $10 and includes the film’s actual shooting script and rare historical documents from the Warner Bros. archives. The “Casablanca” e-book, for instance, not only includes the original script, but it also features producer Hall Wallis’ production notes and studio chief Jack Warner’s telegrams and memos. The “Ben-Hur” e-book contains excerpts from star Charlton Heston’s acting and shooting journals during filming, as well as a forward and photograph captions written by Mr. Heston’s son, Fraser.”
