Headlining the December 15th Bonhams &Butterfields auction of Entertainment Memorabilia is the personally-owned 'presentation copy' script from the 1940 Alfred Hitchcock classic film Rebecca gifted to Academy Award -winning actress Joan Fontaine by legendary producer David O. Selznick. The script was consigned directly by Ms. Fontaine who has had it in her possession for 68 years, since it was given to her by Selznick following the completion of the film.
The inside front end paper boasts a personal inscription from Selznick in black fountain pen ink "For Joan,/ This souvenir of a / struggle and a dream. May neither be forgotten / too soon./ Yours with affection -/ until the adventure's sequel,/ David" [O. Selznick]. Bonhams & Butterfields expect it will bring $35,000 to $40,000 at the Los Angeles auction.
