Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $983.68 (includes buyer's premium)


Gene Kranz's brad-bound Imagine Entertainment typescript for the film Apollo 13, fourth revised draft, 8.75 x 11.25, 141 pages, stamp-dated August 8, 1994. Includes a typed letter bearing preprinted signatures of Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, and Tom Hanks, inviting Kranz to a screening, in part: "Without assistance from many astronauts, those who worked in mission control and other individuals associated with NASA and the Apollo era, making this kind of film would not have been possible. Out of respect for the program, we cordially invite you to attend a private VIP screening of APOLLO 13 on Monday, June 12, at 7:30 pm in Houston. Following the screening, we'd like the opportunity to meet you and talk about the film." Also included is a follow-up letter with information for the event schedule, as well as a letter relating to a "Release to Portray Form" intended for Kranz; the unsigned form is included. In overall fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Farthest Reaches. Based on the book Lost Moon: The Perilous Voyage of Apollo 13, Ron Howard’s film adaptation of the third lunar-landing mission proved to be a major critical and box office success, and was awarded with nine Oscar nominations. Actor Ed Harris, who portrayed flight director Gene Kranz in the film, earned a Best Supporting Actor nomination for his performance.
