Cold Mountain screenplay archive

We’ve just purchased this small collection of scripts and film production memos relating to the 2002 filming of Charles Frazier’s Cold Mountain.

Frazier received his Ph.D. in English here at USC before his writing career took off, and Cold Mountain, as a sleeper best-seller, has an interesting publication history. This collection both supplements our existing Frazier collections and might also have some research value to Film and Media Studies students.

Shooting schedule in South Carolina

At least four drafts of the shooting screenplay, with revisions, are present, along with production notes, shooting schedules, and some production email printouts that document how the project evolved at its final, shooting, stage.
