Classic Movie Scripts Released as E-Books


On April 30, Warner Brothers released scripts as e-books for the first time ever, including films such as Ben-Hur and Casablanca.

Apple's iBookstore, Amazon's Kindle and Barnes and Noble's Nook stores are all selling titles from Inside the Script, the company's digital publishing effort that offers the scripts from classic movies in illustrated e-book format.

Each e-book retails for $10, and includes rare historical documents from the Warner Bros. archives, like Casablanca producer Hal Wallis' production notes and excerpts from Ben-Hur star Charlton Heston's acting and shooting journals.

An American in Paris and Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest are also available.
