Gladiator
Upon the sudden death of Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius, his trusted and successful general Narcissus Meridas is unlawfully imprisoned and condemned to the gladiator games by Marcus's twisted son Commodus. As the new emperor, Commodus fears Narcissus could use his heroic stature to depose him and become leader himself. But Narcissus gains fame as a gladiator and uses his celebrity to cause further damage to Commodus' tenuous hold on the susceptible Roman people, hoping to inspire them to rediscover their lost values and overcome the corruption that is eating away at them. These actions prompt Commodus to square off mano a mano with Narcissus in the Colisseum with the fate of Rome at stake. The characters of Marcus Aurelius and Commodus appeared in Anthony Mann's epic "Fall of the Roman Empire:, played by Alec Guinness and Christopher Plummer, respectively

Thelma & Louise (1991) Callie Khouri Script - Final Shooting Script 6/5/90

Transcript - Final Movie

The female version of the buddy pic is a road adventure of two would-be outlaws who cross the line into "stirring up undertones of oppressed women..."Desson Howe, The Washington Post. Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis alternate from comedy to drama as they pair up for a girl's night out that turns into an attempted parking lot rape/killing; that turns into a convenience store stickup spree; that leads to a manacled cop and an exploding tanker; and that gets concerned, sympathetic cop Harvey Keitel on their tails; and that finally leads to an alltime cliffhanger ending.

Black Rain (1989) Craig Bolotin and Warren Lewis Script - Unspecified Draft 11/87
It's culture clash time, as not-so-clean NY cops Michael Douglas and Andy Garcia manage to lose the Yakuza (Japanese Mafia) killer they've escorted to Osaka, and long-suffering, straight arrow Inspector Matsumoto (the legendary Ken Takakura) gets stuck with babysitting them. The cultural slurs come as hot and heavy as the shootings and stabbings ("Don't expect to see this at the UN" Mike Clark, USA Today), but then, during its successful run in Japan, "Kensan" was viewed as the hero.

Blade Runner (1982) Hampton Fancher Script - Unspecified early Draft 7/24/80

 

Hampton Fancher and David Peoples Script - Unspecified later Draft  2/23/81
Blade Runner
There's a sushi bar on every block in the perpetually overcast and drizzling LA of 2019, as Harrison Ford's detective Deckard hunts down a renegade band of replicants (androids) on the run. Scott's combination of sci-fi with film noir is here returned to his original intentions, shorn of Ford's studio imposed voiceover and the equally imposed "happy ending" while extending the Ford/Sean Young romantic scenes. "Grand enough in scale to carry its many Biblical and mythological references, (it) never feels heavy or pretentious only more and more engrossing with each viewing" Rita Kempley, The Washington Post.

Alien (1979) Walter Hill and David Giler Script - Revised Final Draft  6/78
Alien Awakened from hyper-sleep by a distress signal, the all-star crew of the freighter Nostromo lands on planet LB426 to find an immense derelict alien mothership and brings back a nasty survi vorbig mistake! With its alien decor and creature inspired by the designs of surrealist H. R. Giger, Ridley Scott shredded the nerves of both audiences and actors (he didn't warn the cast of the thing's gruesome first reappearance), and gave Sigourney Weaver her star-making role of "Ripley""the most courageous and resourceful heroine seen on the screen in years"Gary Arnold, The Washington Post .

Duellists, The (1977) Script
Strasbourg, 1801; and Napoleonic lieutenant Keith Carradine thinks everything's settled when prickly fellow lieutenant Harvey Keitel comes in second in the duel he's demandedbut that's just the beginning for the monomaniac. And the challenges keep coming for 15 years, as Napoleon rises and falls and they each become generals, with broadswords, sabers, pistols, etcinterrupted only by actual wars. Scott's first feature showcases some of the most hairraising swordfighting on filmno swishing rapiers but heavy clankers that took real pieces off the actorsas well as a checklist of British stage and film greats, as well as the ravishing photogra phy that would become his trademark: "almost indescribable beauty. It's marvelous"Vincent Canby, The New York Times .
