Unproduced James Ivory Film

Along for the Ride [Original Screenplay]

Notes: An unproduced screenplay about disaffected upperclass youth in New York, seemingly an early collaboration between Trow, a New Yorker writer, and Ivory, part of the James Ivory, Ismail Merchant, and Ruth Prawer Jhabvala trio that formed Merchant Ivory Productions. The screenplay appears to date from the Viet Nam War era and explores some of the themes of Savages (1972), the first Merchant Ivory film based on a Trow script.

The script is not dated but the first Merchant Ivory film released by DIA Films was Bombay Talkie, from 1970. No copy of this screenplay is recorded in the James Ivory papers at the University of Oregon.

Title leaf plus 92 numbered leaves, printed rectos (front-side) only. Bound in printed vinyl Studio Duplicating Service covers with screw brads.

Edition + Condition: Very good.

Publication: New York: DIA Films, (n.d. but ca. 1970).
