Unearthed Stanley Kubrick Script Put Up for Auction08.11.2018
The “lost” Kubrick script, squirrelled away on a shelf for over 60 years, will be auctioned off and specialists expect that it will sell for at least $20,000.
The manuscript was found by researcher and Kubrick scholar Nathan Abrams. It was discovered in the home of Gerald Fried, Kubrick’s friend, long-time collaborator, and composer.
The script, called Burning Secret, was inspired by a 1913 novella by the Austrian poet and playwright Stefan Zweig. The novella tells the story of a man who befriends a young boy in order to improve his chances of seducing the boy’s beautiful mother. As noted by Deadline, Nathan Abrams believes that the controversial story, which he describes as “the inverse of Lolita,” could have contributed to the project being shelved indefinitely.
The script will be auctioned off at Bonhams in New York City on November 20.
