SKIN GAME (Dec 10, 1968) Rev First Draft screenplay by Peter Stone (African American film) Universal City, CA: Universal Studios, 1968. Vintage original film script, 11 x 8 ½” (28 x 21 cm.), printed wrappers, brad bound, mimeograph, 148 pp. Just about fine.

A gentle comedy set in Missouri in 1857. James Garner and Louis Gossett Jr. star as con men. Garner “sells” Gossett (in fact, a freeman born in New Jersey) in one slave town after another to a succession of witless slave owners. Gossett repeatedly escapes, teaming up with Garner to scam somebody else in another town.

Bogle, Blacks in American Films, p. 191: “The two leads work well together, making this a… likable comedy.”
