[HOWERD, Frankie] COLIN, Sid

Up Pompeii

London: Ned Sherrin Productions/Anglo-EMI, 1970



Large 8vo, 140 pp., bound in brown stiff paper wrappers, text block secured with two split pins. Wrappers a little rubbed and dusty, but a very well preserved copy.



First edition. FREELANCE COMEDY WRITER DICK VOSBURGH'S COPY, WITH HIS NOTES TO TITLE PAGE AND OCCASIONAL NOTES AND MARKINGS THROUGHOUT THE TEXT.

Script for the film version of Up Pompeii!, which cast Michael Hordern as Ludicrus, Julie Ege as Voluptua, and Madeleine Smith as Erotica. (The feature film dispensed with the TV show's exclamation mark).

Although his work is uncredited, writer Dick Vosburgh worked on both the TV and film incarnations of Up Pompeii!, a hugely successful show which was worked up by a number of writers from an original idea by Talbot Rothwell.
