Funny, I'm watching the same AR episode and that's what brought me here! A more direct link to the PBS article:

Antique Roadshow showed the script again - today's date Dec. 15, 2008.

Like the other people here, that's what brought me to this site. Interesting how much those old scripts are worth.

Hilarious to find this thread. I am watching A.R. right now and they just showed that clip again. Sounds like a great movie. I'll check it out.

A very interesting side note: the appraiser on A.R. said that V. McLaglen turned down the Oscar due to an actors' union dispute but there is not mention of that in the "Awards" link. The link merely states that he won the award and, by inference, that he accepted it.

"You've got me! Who's got you?"

reply

No it wasn't McLaglan. It was Dudley Nichols.

The weird thing is that Seymour Roman isn't anywhere on IMDB.

But I did find this little snippet:

Seems he was a film editor.

Someone else posted that the script was his inadvertently tossed in the trash by a family member.
He also tells a story of how he got the script from the authors mother as a gift for running errands for her when he was a boy.....wonder if he ever had it returned now that it was appraised at 4k
