Each different, with one HEAVILY ANNOTATED IN FELT by the screenwriter RUDY WURLITZER. [Together with]: 325 ORIGINAL SNAPSHOT PHOTOS OF LOCATIONS FOR THE FILM IN NEPAL & BHUTAN and related ephemera, including letters from Rudy to Bernardo Bertolucci.
Los Angeles & New York: [Favored Artists Agency, CiBy 2000 & Serprocor Anstalt] [1993]. [1993]. Signed
- Four typescripts of the screenplay for "Little Buddha" by Rudy Wurlitzer, all are typed on 11 inch high by 8-1/2 inch wide sheets and are differently bound, including one consisting of loose pages laid into a stiff color illustrated publicity folder. All of the typescripts appear to be different drafts of the screenplay written as Wurlitzer and Bertolucci's conception of the film developed. Indeed, the first line of each typescript differs one from the other. Only one typescript is dated, that one being identified as a continuity script is likely the closest to the final filmed version. The others, described below, appear to be evolving states of the screenplay. A typescript consisting of the title and 109 loose pages is bound into a stiff black folder with a clear cover. This typescript, which may well be the earliest of the 4, is heavily annotated in black felt by Rudy Wurlitzer with substantial corrections and annotations within the text and profuse notes penned on many of the facing blank pages throughout. One of the first annotations penned by Rudy on the verso of the title leaf indicates that he may still be researching the material as he reminds himself to "Ask Matthew Kapstein about Vedas". Throughout the early part of the action, he has changed the person who speaks several of the lines from "Lama Karmay" to "Lama Norbu". Rudy has, in many instances, penned editorial notes such as "After scene in kitchen / cut to Siddharta / then Sebastian / then airplane". Of the other typescripts, the longest is bound in stiff white wrappers with the "Favored Artists' Agency" logo and addresses on the front cover. This 130 page typescript credits the story to Bernardo Bertolucci and the screenplay to Rudy Wurlitzer. Another typescript, at 88 pages, appears incomplete and the pages are laid loose in a glossy stiff illustrated "International Sales" folder. Finally, a 97 page typescript bound in clear plastic is identified as the "30th March, 1993 (Continuity script)". The story, as with the previous typescripts, is credited to Bernardo Bertolucci but credit for the screenplay is now shared between Rudy Wurlitzer and Mark Peploe. The typescripts are accompanied by related material including a 19 page "Outline" of 96 scenes which are to take place in varying locations. The outline for the first scenes describes them thus "1) JATAKA TALE: The story of the sacrificial goat and the corruption of Brahmin ritual". Followed by "2) SHEDRE: Lama Norbu ends the story to CHOMPA and a room full of young Monks...." Within a folder Rudy Wurlitzer has kept photocopies of contracts with the Writer's Guild and others and print-outs of e-mail attachments. A typed letter signed from Angela and Kevin Arnold addressed to Rudy and dated March 30, 1993 relate how their own 5 year old son was enthroned as an "American tulku" by Chagdud Tulku Rimpoche before 200 practitioners and Nyingma Lamas. Enclosed with the letter is a color photograph of the young man in ceremonial Tibetan attire and the Fall 1992 "Newsletter of Chagdud Gonpa" titled "The Wind Horse" which includes an article about the ceremony in which 5 year old Wyatt Arnold was elevated to tulku. Two typed letters signed by Rudy addressed to "Bernardo" mention research he is doing as he prepares to write the screenplay. In one he mentions that "In a few hours I'll see Sogyal Rinpoche. Unfortunately I haven't finished his book but I still have several things to ask him. Later on this afternoon Lynn and I will drive to the country and I'll start on the script...." In the other, a denser letter, he writes of visiting "Professor Bob" who will be "very useful on the Buddha sections...." He mentions that the professor thinks they should make an effort to include the Dalai Lama in the story and that he "would do all in his power to convince His Holiness to play himself...." Also included is a real-photo postcard illustrated with a color portrait of Rudy seated on the step in front of a monastery between Bertolucci at one side and his [Rudy's] wife Lynn on the other. A Tibetan monk stands in the background in the opening of the great double-doors. A brief autograph letter signed by Bertolucci associate Fabien S. Gerard is penned on the verso: "Thanks for the news! Just a hellish & sleepless year for me too. I think the film is one of B's major achievements & hope the 'many happy few' will love it in the states too...." and mentions that he is trying to schedule a special screening for children through UNESCO. Signed "Fabien". Fabien S. Gerard was Bertolucci's script supervisor for 10 years and authored the shooting diary of "The Last Emperor". There is also a two-page autograph letter by Fabien, originally intended as a fax, but subsequently mailed to Rudy as Fabien has penned the following on the verso of the second page: "Tried to fax this for a whole week... but it never passed through...." Referring to "Little Buddha", Fabien speaks of the "magical days we spent together between Nepal & Bhutan" and that he "sent you a large picture of you & BB taken in some local airport on the way to Paro..." and, in a postscript makes mention of showing "'Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid' to my students lately & someone said [it] was the most beautiful Western he had ever seen...." [Rudy wrote the screenplay for Sam Peckinpah's "Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid"]. The typescripts and ephemera are accompanied by 325 ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS, mostly of locations in Nepal and Bhutan including landscapes, buildings and Nepali and Bhutanese people as well as several photos showing Bernardo Bertolucci, Rudy Wurlitzer and the producer Jeremy Thomas on location. Several photos also include crew members. Photographed in February and March 1992, approximately two-thirds of the 4 inch high by 6 inch wide snapshots are in color and another third are in black & white. The larger proportion of the photographs appear to have been shot in Nepal, though there are a substantial quantity which were shot in Bhutan. The photographs are accompanied by a substantial number of original negatives. A unique archive. The American experimental novelist & screenwriter Rudy Wurlitzer (born 1937) first started writing when working on an oil tanker when he was 17 years old. A descendant of Rudolph Wurlitzer who founded the Wurlitzer piano company, Rudy subsequently worked as secretary for the author Robert Graves who he credits with teaching him to "write short sentences". Settling in NYC in the 1960's he was a friend to Claes Oldenburg, Robert Frank and Philip Glass. With his wife, the photographer Lynn Davis, Rudy moved to upstate New York and also refurbished a cabin in Cape Breton. His highly experimental first novel "Nog" is considered a cult classic. He followed this with "Flats", "Quake", "Slow Fade", and "The Drop Edge of Yonder". He also wrote his memoir "Hard Travel To Sacred Places". Among his film projects, Rudy Wurlitzer wrote the screenplay for the cult-classic "Two-Lane Blacktop", Sam Peckinpah's "Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid", "Candy Mountain" which he co-directed with Robert Frank, and Bernardo Bertolucci's "Little Buddha".
