A unique copy with the name of the original user Deanne Barkley stamped in gold on the front panel below the title. I cannot find any reference to her on the official Emmy site as to her involvement with the program though this item clearly documents one. Barkley later became a legend in Hollywood in part because she appears to have been a genuinely nice person in the TV business. She started out in television game shows in the early fifties and slowly worked her way up. She moved to LA from New York in the late 60s and worked with Divk Cavett on the first iteration of the Dick Cavett show. Two years later she became an Executive Vice President at ABC in charge of made for TV movies which heralded the most productive period of her career. Her involvement with the 1970 Emmys was, at the least, a result of her work with Cavett who has the East Coast host of the program for that year. Bill Cosby was the LA host and nominated for an award that he failed to win.
Peter Ustinov won the award for Outstanding Single Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role for "A Storm in Summer Hallmark Hall of Fame."
Patty Duke won the award for Outstanding Single Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for "My Sweet Charlie World Premiere." "Marcus Welby," was the outstanding dramatic series for the year.
Asof May 3rd no copies of Emmy scripts are available for sale online.
The copy is from the library of Itzhak Emanuel who authored a 1971 dissertation at the University of California, Berkeley entitled, "A descreptive [sic] history of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences annual awards: the television productions, 1953-1970." Three copies of that masterpiece are located by Worldcat. Worldcat lists the television program itself but not this script.
