A "revised shooting script" of Allen's own film adaptation of his 1969 play. Charles Grodin had written at least one draft of an earlier adaptation for the same production company. This copy includes dated revises on colored stock spanning 20 - 27 September. The film was released in May 1972, was directed by Herbert Ross, and starred Allen, Diane Keaton, Tony Roberts, Jerry Lacy, Viva, Joy Bang, et al. This copy bears the ink name "Jerry Lacy" on the upper wrapper (he played Bogart in the film) and contact info for Joy Bang and other annotations in the same hand. Actual pre-production scripts by Allen or for films based on his sourceworks tend to be rather uncommon, their circulation being largely confined to those actually involved directly in production.
