A "Temporary Incomplete" draft of Behrman's screenplay,
dated December 27, 1939 (with later sections dated January
1, 1940), containing pages numbered 11-159. This script
opens with a long-shot of Waterloo Bridge, and concludes
with a dissolve, so the as yet to be added leaves may
consist of the flashback framework that was an added feature
of the 1940 remake. This version was directed by Mervyn
Leroy, and starred Vivien Leigh and Robert Taylor. At this
stage of the script's genesis, Behrman is the only credited
writer; Hans Rameau and George Froeschel eventually shared
credit upon the films release in May.
studio-generated mimeographed copy of Tom Reed's original 67
page screen adaptation of Robert Sherwood's play, dated
February 4, 1931, but copied October 20, 1939. This
copy was prepared for consultation when the studio remade
the film in 1940, based on the new screenplay by Behrman.
The 1931 version was directed by James Whale, and was more
explicit in its treatment of Myra Deauville's situation
(played by Mae Clarke) and the prostitution theme.
