BOX 120-195 Stage and Screen, 1941-2013
The Stage and Screen series consists of scripts, screenplays, and treatments written or consulted on by Wouk for theatre, television, and film. Wouk adapted many of his novels for stage and screen. Among plays, the series includes files related to the attempted musical adaptation of his novel Don't Stop the Carnival with musician Jimmy Buffet from 1994 to 2001. Materials include contracts, correspondence, libretto drafts, marketing material, and work journals. Much of the correspondence concerns productions staged in Miami, Florida, and Nassau, Bahamas. The series also documents the play The Caine Mutiny Court Martial, dramatized by Wouk and adapted from his novel of the same name in 1953, and includes material on subsequent international and revival productions and television adaptations dating from 1954 to 2006. A small amount of material relates to film adaptations of The Caine Mutiny, Marjorie Morningstar, and Slattery's Hurricane. Among television productions, the series includes files related to the television mini-series The Winds of War and War and Remembrance, based on Wouk’s novels, which aired on ABC in 1983 and 1988-1989, respectively. Files include promotion materials, publicity, reviews, research, and correspondence with producer and director Dan Curtis. The files primarily document the writing process, and include rough drafts, fragments, revisions, author approval review copies, and final shooting scripts. There is very little documentation of the production aspects of the project. Wouk’s work journals further detail the writing process, describing his ideas, emotions, relationships with collaborators, and experiences working within the television industry. Wouk wrote the entire teleplay for The Winds of War, while Curtis and Earl W. Wallace wrote the bulk of the teleplay for War and Remembrance, with Wouk focusing on the more historical and Holocaust-related sequences.
Material types include writings, drafts, libretto, correspondence, work journals, notes, clippings, memoranda and notes, scripts, contracts, outlines, schedules, financial materials, and reviews.
