A draft of the script of the film “Star Wars” will be put up for auction in London. This copy belonged to the actor Harrison Ford – it was found in his rented apartment in 1976.
The auction will be held on February 17, Excalibur Auctions reports. The approximate price that they plan to sell for the lot is from 8 to 12 thousand pounds.
The script is the fourth draft of Star Wars. Then the film was still called “The Adventures of Luke Starkiller” (The Adventures Of Luke Starkiller). The copy refers to characters and scenes that were not included in the final version of the tape.
The script is incomplete and unbound, and its pages are of different colors. The colored pages are usually edits to the white ones, the BBC writes.

“The moving backstory of these items adds even more appeal to die-hard Star Wars fans, and we expect tremendous interest from around the world.” Excalibur Auctions auctioneer Jonathan Torode noted.
The script remained in a flat on Elgin Crescent, Notting Hill, which Ford rented in 1976. According to Jonathan Torode, “Star Wars” had not yet been released and no one had “any idea how big it was going to be.”

The owners of the apartment said that the actor was “a great tenant, very tidy”. They also noted that Ford once had drinks with them in the garden and even attended their son’s birthday party.
The owners of the apartment also auctioned other items from the filming: a list of calls, a shooting schedule and a handwritten note from Ford.
We will remind you that Churchill’s golden denture will be put up for auction in Britain.
