Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"There's never been a writer for the American screen like Preston Sturges, who exhilaratingly and wittingly combined all the qualities necessary to take a film from inception through screenplay to set to screen. These are three scripts Sturges did not direct, unfortunately; they are, as a result, only OK movies, while the screenplays remain brilliant."—Peter Bogdanovich

If you are a student or fan of classic screenwriting, this is your book. Three great screenplays by one of Hollywood's greatest screenwriters. These are actual copies of the working screenplays, some have notes form the original cast and crew.

Format: Paperback
I bought this after seeing "Remember the Night" on TV as a holiday classic. This fine collection gives the student of classic Hollywood or the budding screenwriter a good example of how to do it right in a romantic comedy and drama setting. Well worth the money.

O loved the fact that this book is a reprint of real screenplays, with production-time pen and ink edits shown.
