Item 106 - Guenter Wendt’s ‘From the Earth to the Moon’ Production Draft Script Catalog 451 (Apr 2015)

Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $1,036.35 (includes buyer's premium)


Guenter Wendt’s production draft of the script for ‘From the Earth to the Moon,’ a 1998 TV miniseries on HBO, consisting of a thick 11.75 x 11.5 x 3.5 binder filled with drafts for eight episodes, each approximately 60 pages. Wendt makes a few changes throughout the first and second scripts, generally crossing out dialogue or making brief factual corrections. The majority of his emendations come in the draft for the second episode, entitled “The Fire,” portraying the Apollo 1 disaster. On the reverse of one sheet, he writes: “Smoke was generated by the burning foam! Ed. W.’s O2 hose was disconnected & he most likely was conscious.” He also notes that there was not a bolt where the script called for one. A page inserted in the front of the binder featuring the series logo is signed by Wendt, in full: “From my collection—My actual production draft copy of the HBO mini-movie series of ‘From the Earth to the Moon,’ Guenter F. Wendt, Mercury-Gemini-Apollo Pad Leader.” Heavy haloing to Wendt’s writing on the cover page and some foxing to the binder itself, otherwise fine condition. In the final series, the second episode was simply titled ‘Apollo One,’ rather than ‘The Fire’ like this draft. It was a highly successful project, winning three Emmys and a Golden Globe. A fantastic piece bridging the realities of spaceflight with popular culture. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli.
