OUT OF THE CRADLE ENDLESSLY ROCKING [screenplay]. TYPED MANUSCRIPT (TMs). 110 leaves, top copy, single-spaced, typed on rectos of plain letter-size paper, with numerous handwritten corrections throughout. Despite his success with his novel, THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER (1953), which was turned into a successful noir movie in 1955, Grubb had no other work filmed, other than a few episodes of television shows. This script is set in the South in 1975 and deals with a variety of social issues: race relations, religious bigotry, drugs, organized crime. It is what used to be called a "message movie" -- earnest and talky. It has not been produced, making this one of a handful of copies, or perhaps the only copy of the text. Faint creases to a few pages, covers a little scuffed, else fine. Bound in black binder with typed paper labels affixed to front cover. (#104630).
