New York: Warner Brothers 1996.
First edition of the draft script for the 1996 film, boldly signed by Oliver Stone, based on the 1978 musical stage production by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, which was in turn based on Rice and Webber’s 1976 concept album, following the brief life of Argentinean first lady Eva Peron from her impoverished illegitimate beginnings to her later idolatry. The film went through many iterations of production, passing between studios and directors, with Parker returning to direct in 1994 after having initially rejected the opportunity in 1979.
