BOX 132-139 Buchwald v. Paramount Pictures Corporation, 1981-1999
The Buchwald v. Paramount Pictures Corporation series chronicles a lawsuit Buchwald and producer, Alain Bernheim, filed against Paramount Pictures in 1988 for breach of contract in the development of a film treatment. The suit was filed in the state of California on Buchwald’s claim that Paramount Pictures based their film Coming to America on his and Bernheim’s treatment titled “King for a Day,” thereby violating their contract agreements providing them compensation and credit if Paramount Pictures produced a movie based on their creative work. Buchwald was ultimately awarded damages in 1992. This series comprehensively documents the legal proceedings of the suit and includes draft copies of Buchwald's "King for a Day" and the screenplay directly based on his treatment, the initial complaint filed in 1988, briefs, motions, memoranda, depositions, and court transcripts. Correspondence from friends and colleagues reflect reactions to the suit and its outcome and a collection of clippings and a scrapbook chronicle press coverage of the case.
Material types include briefs, correspondence, dispositions, memoranda, motions, newspaper clippings, and transcripts.
