Cutting continuity script
An original continuity script from the production of Dick Tracy, the 1937 Republic Pictures movie serial starring Ralph Byrd.
This original production cutting continuity script comprises of all fifteen episodes of the serial spanning 295 pages with each episode having its own title page with the content split between two reels. These would have originally been individual scripts for each episode which have been professionally bound soon after the serials release in to one large volume which features front and rear covers of thick material covered board with the front embossed with the title 'DICK TRACY' and 'A CLIFFHANGERS CLUB EDITION' to the bottom, to the interior the original holes for each page are still visible within the binding. Each episode title page throughout the script features a restriction notice from Republic Pictures stating that this continuity is for the use of the film repair room and censorship boards and is not for distribution.
The large book measures approximately 13" x 8.5" and is 1.75" thick, it remains in excellent vintage condition with some corner wear to the front and rear boards, the interior content having been well protected is in overall fine condition with some period tape repairs and hand inscribed writing to the first title page.
An extraordinarily rare example of original material from this classic Republic serial.
