Yellow Submarine script cover

Attention FAB-FOUR FANATICS and BEATLE-MANIACS !!

This is a unique opportunity to own a copy of the complete 80-page, 50-year-old, first-draft, never-before-made-public YELLOW SUBMARINE screenplay–along with official documentation and personal correspondence–which I recently discovered among some long-forgotten files.

The entire script has been meticulously photo-copied, plasticine-covered and spiral-bound in a lay-flat format, autographed by me, Jack Mendelsohn. If you'd like a personal inscription, let me know.

Price:  Just $100 for the personally signed, Xeroxed script, including postage and handling.

I'm limiting the run to a mere 100 numbered copies, which are sure to go quickly. Incidentally, I’m 87 years old and I might also go quickly.  So I advise you to take advantage of this one-time offer, and get them while they’re hot–and I’m still warm.

 

Background:

The Yellow Submarine script is credited to four different writers–British playwright Lee Minoff, who wrote the original outline; Al Brodax, the film’s producer; Erich Segal (the author of Love Story); and myself.  This profusion of credits has created much puzzlement among many Beatles fans, as to who, exactly, wrote what. 

If it helps in any way to clarify matters, this draft of the screenplay is exactly as I wrote it in 1967, complete with misspellings, typing errors, and some last-minute, hand-written revisions. 

My intention was to create an overall spirit of “unrestrained playfulness” overlaid on an already-established foundation of psychedelic surrealism.  I hope I was successful.
