Jacob's Ladder (1990). Shifting uncomfortably he pulls a thick book out of his back pocket, "The Stranger" by Albert Camus. Cheers and applause ring out for JACOB and JEZZIE but JACOB barely hears them. JEZZIE hugs him tightly

About Jacob’s Ladder, Bruce wrote: The script idea for Jacob’s Ladder began as a dream: A subway late at night; I am traveling through the bowels of New York City. There are very few people on the train. The screenplay is by seasoned Jewish writers Toby Emmerich and Bruce Joel Rubin (who won an Oscar for his script for "Ghost"). Shaye told the Detroit Jewish News that he met Emmerich when they were kids attending a Conservative synagogue in suburban Detroit. a b c d e f g h i j "BIO EXTENDED".

The only drawback to this book is Bruce Joel Rubin's masterful screenplay is presented in the final shooting script form. Other than that, everything about this book is a t I love reading screenplays. The format lends itself to a certain kind of kinetic visual and emotional experience. When read in original spec form in the 8 by 11 format, a well structured screenplay will read like the movie is playing out right before your eyes in real time, . 120 pages will take 2 hours to read.

Jacob's Ladder is one of my all time favourite films and this screenplay is the perfect piece of paraphernalia for collectors and fans of the movie. Initially I bought this just as a sign of devotion to this movie but was impressed by the content of the book. There is an introduction and notes by Bruce Joel Rubin which give great insight into the politics of producing this movie. An invaluable acquisition for the Jacob fan.

New York postal worker Jacob Singer (Tim Robbins,) is trying to keep his frayed life from unraveling is first marriage, his now-dead son (Macaulay Culkin), and his tour of duty in Vietnam. Although his new wife (Elizabeth Peña) tries to help Jacob keep his grip on sanity, the line between reality and delusion is steadily growing more and more uncertain.

Jacob's Ladder is a 1990 American psychological horror film directed by Adrian Lyne, produced by Alan Marshall, written by Bruce Joel Rubin and starring Tim Robbins, Elizabeth Peña, and Danny Aiello. The horror of the movie would be in the revelation that hope is hell's final torment, that life is a dream that ends over and over with the final truth: that life was never real, that we are all creatures trapped in eternal suffering and damnation.

Reviews about Jacob's Ladder (Applause Screenplay) (5):
Tygolar
Nice quality book for those that loved the movie
Kipabi
This is a screenplay, not a novel - and that's perfect for my use, it follows the film exactly. There are tons of photos, good quality black and white images although this is not trade paperback quality paper (i.e. it is not glossy stock). Well worth the money, especially if you love the film as I do.

It's difficult to say too much about the insights given in this book without creating spoilers for the movie.
Bruce's description of the evolution of the script and the basic story content, such as Jacob's Book of the Dead journey of the soul, including the inspiration for some of the stark gothic imagery, is enormously helpful for any fan of the movie.
I found the movie to be very uplifting, and in its own way, quite beautiful. There are many excellent and representative photos to accompany the full script and Bruce's superb descriptive rundown on JL which he calls Jacob's Chronicle.
This book would be very helpful for anybody who was confused by the movie or parts of the movie, yet who would like to understand more.
The only minor blips in the script concern the Vietnam scenes. One point is that (in my copy anyway) he refers to a Field Hospital, yet a soldier in Jacob's shape would have been Dusted Off (air medevaced) to either a Surgical Hospital or an Evacuation Hospital (possibly having gone through the Battalion Surgeon's Forward Aid Station first.) In Nam, the Field Hospital was a larger, longer term care facility, which was more remote from likely action (despite its misleading name.)
There is also a memo from Adrian Lyne stating that the movie is set in 1975, "three years after the end of the Vietnam War". The war officially ended in April 1973.
The only other Nam technicality was that where Bruce refers to "two Orderlies" in the script, the men would have actually been Corpsmen (a form of Medic.)
Great movie, powerful ending. Read all about it.

I like to keep film scripts of my favorite movies. Sometimes you can see where the movie takes the script word for word at other time you can see where they deviate and choose which would have been better. The scene descriptions are worth it alone.

The scrip is interspersed with pictures from the movie. I have to confess at the time this was the first time I saw a movie with Elizabeth Peña and was intrigued.

Just like getting those little extras on DVD like “the making of”, we get a little extra at the end of the book “Jacob’s Chronicle” which is pretty much the story from concept to finish.

The only problem a guess is that I am not quit over Vietnam myself so I get a little antsy at times.

Jacob's Ladder is one of my all time favourite films and this screenplay is the perfect piece of paraphernalia for collectors and fans of the movie. Initially I bought this just as a sign of devotion to this movie but was impressed by the content of the book. There is an introduction and notes by Bruce Joel Rubin which give great insight into the politics of producing this movie. The script is also interlaced with hundreds of beautiful black and white photographs, and we are also treated to the script of a number of deleted scenes, including alternate endings. Perhaps the most fascinating part of this book is the original Buddhist ending, which initially was to represent a kind of "zen" moment for Jacob, but was deemed pretty much impossible to produce, hence leading to the current ending.

Overall, a very worthwhile companion to one of the finest, scariest, most beautiful and most underrated movies ever made.
