1 Nocenti, Annie, ed. Scenario: The Magazine of Screenwriting Art (1999) [includes ELECTION, REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE and THE BIRDS]
New York RC Publications Inc. 1999 NO (Vol. 5, No. 2) Periodical Fine Illustrated by various illustrators 
[very faint edgewear, otherwise clean and newsstand-bright; just about as nice as you could possibly want]. A "theme" issue of sorts, with two of the three complete screenplays -- ELECTION (by Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor) and REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE (by Stewart Stern) -- providing a cross-generational justification for the "Dangerous Teens" heading at the top of the front cover; additionally, the Keynote Essay, by Molly Haskell, is called "Teen Power." The third script, while not teen-themed, is "dangerous" in a different way: THE BIRDS by Evan Hunter. All scripts, as usual with this publication, are accompanied by interviews with their writers, and there are several other features of interest in this issue: an article by Donald Spoto, "Love, Dreams & Hitchcock," addressing the question of whether or not Alfred Hitchcock was a romantic; an article by Millard Kaufman about the hubbub surrounding the presentation of an honorary Oscar to Elia Kazan; a discussion of Philip Glass's film scores, by Michael Rohatyn. Rounding out the issue are two short film scripts: GOFER, by Joe Hamersky, and FISH BELLY WHITE, by Michael Burke.

2 {Fuller, Samuel} Nocenti, Annie, ed. Scenario: The Magazine of Screenwriting Art (Fall 1998) [special Sam Fuller tribute issue]
New York RC Publications Inc. 1998 NO (Vol. 4, No. 3) Periodical Near Fine Illustrated by various illustrators 
[nice clean fresh copy, with just a few traces of handling wear here and there]. About half of this issue is devoted to Fuller. In addition to the screenplays for PICKUP ON SOUTH STREET and SHOCK CORRIDOR (both published for the first time), there is a keynote essay on the writer/director by J. Hoberman, excerpts from various interviews with Fuller, and, most fabulously, reproductions of pages from his war journals, which contain numerous cartoons which are just as punchy and his films, and just as vivid as he was in real life. Essential for the Fuller fan, and a terrific companion piece to his posthumously-published memoir "A Third Face." Oh, yes, there are a couple of other screenplays in the issue, too: "Slam" (credited to five writers, and which the editor claims was "a film Fuller would have enjoyed"; there is also supplementary interview material with the filmmakers and actors) and "Weeds," winner of the WGA's Student Screenplay Competition.

3 {Gorey, Edward} {Mamet, David} Nocenti, Annie, ed. Scenario: The Magazine of Screenwriting Art (Spring 1998) [includes YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, THE SPANISH PRISONER and THE BLACK DOLL]
New York RC Publications Inc. 1998 NO (Vol. 4, No. 1) Periodical Very Good+ Illustrated by (cover) Rudy Muller; various illustrators 
[light edgewear, top front corner bumped (cover and first several pages), some light diagonal creasing at top left front cover]. Complete screenplays, with writer interviews: THE FULL MONTY (Simon Beaufoy); YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN (Gene Wilder and Mel Brooks, both interviewed); THE SPANISH PRISONER (David Mamet; in addition to the interview there is also an essay by Jonathan Rosenbaum, drawing connections between Mamet's work and that of Alfred Hitchcock); and THE BLACK DOLL (Edward Gorey). The last-named is described as "an unproduced silent film script by a wry master of menace" featuring "fiends, fainting ladies, Asiatics, poison, pallbearer gloves and a masked ball"; in addition to being interviewed, Gorey also provided the illustrations for his script. This issue's Keynote Essay is "An Archfield Auteurist's Notes on Screenwriting" by Andrew Sarris.
