A Pair of Larry Cohen Screen adaptations of Mickey Spillane novels
1. I, The Jury. Xerographic Manuscript Signed ("Larry Cohen"), 130 pp, 4to, [New York, 1982], printed on 3-hole paper, unbound, titled and additionally signed in block letters by Cohen, who also notes that the film was independently produced and released by Fox. Cohen wrote the updated adaptation of Spillane's classic novel, but was fired as director mid-way through production to be replaced by Richard T. Heffron, even though he originated the project.
2. My Gun is Quick. Xerographic Manuscript Signed ("Larry Cohen"), 126 pp, 4to, [c.1982], bound with three brads in black covers lettered in gold. My Gun is Quick was optioned by Larry Cohen with I, The Jury and Kiss Me Deadly in the hopes of producing a trilogy of crime thrillers starring Spillane's tough guy detective Mike Hammer. Cohen was fired as director on I, The Jury, however, which derailed the trilogy project, but also motivated him to throw himself into his next project (which many people consider his best): Q—The Winged Serpent (1982).
