Stanley Kubrick's treatment for Full Metal Jacket
Xerographic Manuscript, 157 pp, 4to, n.p., n.d. but some sheets variously dated 1/18/85, 1/22/85, 1/28/05, and 2/4/85, bound at left margin with brass brads, title inked to left edge of sheets, some corner wear, light soiling to cover sheet and final leaf.

The first step toward what would become the screenplay of Full Metal Jacket (1987). Having based his treatment on Gustav Hasford's 1979 novel, The Short-Timers, Kubrick then met with Michael Herr – Vietnam war correspondent and author of Dispatches (1977) – to break the treatment down onto index cards, before Herr wrote the first draft of the screenplay. Kubrick, Herr, and Hasford would all receive a screenplay credit in the end.
