LAUGHTER IN THE DARK: Screen Adaptation. Vladimir Nabokov, Laszlo Papas. LAUGHTER IN THE DARK: Screen Adaptation.
No-place: No-publisher, 1985. First edition, "Second draft, March 1985." An unproduced screenplay by Papas based on Nabokov's 1938 novel; a remake of the 1969 French-British film which changed the story's setting from 1930's Berlin to 1960's London. According to John Colapinto in The New Yorker, this planned 1986 remake was slated to star Mick Jagger in the role of the demonic Axel Rex but "ran aground after a ten-day table read of the script when Rebecca De Mornay, cast as the sex-kitten seductress, clashed with the director, Laszlo Papas, and fled the production." A replacement was found "but the production crumbled and was abandoned" ("Nabakov and the Movies, Jan. 2, 2015). Title page with "Property of" typewritten information for "Left Boot Productions" crossed out and with "J.C. Katz" (and contact info) handwritten beneath. 127 pages, printed on rectos only. 8 1/2 x 11"; clasp-bound in beige construction cardstock with "Vladimir Nabokov's 'Laughter in the Dark'" typewritten on front and the title handwritten on bottom page edges. Covers lightly soiled, touch of minor creasing, otherwise near fine. UNPRODUCED SCREENPLAY.

THE EYE. Vladimir Nabokov. THE EYE.
New York: Phaedra, 1965. First edition, so stated. We believe this to be the first issue/state with publisher's address on copyright page and dust jacket printed on white laid uncoated paper with Trident Press mentioned at bottom of back flap. Although Juliar does not assign a priority to the two issues, we believe it would be first as it matches an advance copy we had in stock. The book is fine and bright in the white dust jacket showing a little aging with one tiny closed tear at bottom corner. Publisher's address on copyright page, presumably making this a first issue, in that we have an uncorrected proof with the address on the copyright page also (copies noted without the address are presumably later issues). Name and address on front endpaper, otherwise fine in white dust jacket with a little darkening around edges.
