Screenwriting by Julian Hoxter( )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,094 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reaching back to the early days of Hollywood, when moonlighting novelists, playwrights, and journalists were first hired to write scenarios and photoplays, Screenwriting illuminates the profound ways that screenwriters have contributed to the films we love. This book explores the social, political, and economic implications of the changing craft of American screenwriting from the silent screen through the classical Hollywood years, the rise of independent cinema, and on to the contemporary global multi-media marketplace. From The Birth of a Nation (1915), Gone With the Wind (1939), and Gentleman's Agreement (1947) to Chinatown (1974), American Beauty (1999), and Lost in Translation (2003), each project began as writers with pen and ink, typewriters, or computers captured the hopes and dreams, the nightmares and concerns of the periods in which they were writing. As the contributors take us behind the silver screen to chronicle the history of screenwriting, they spotlight a range of key screenplays that changed the game in Hollywood and beyond. With original essays from both distinguished film scholars and accomplished screenwriters, Screenwriting is sure to fascinate anyone with an interest in Hollywood, from movie buffs to industry professionals."--Résumé de l'éditeur

The films of George Roy Hill by Andrew Horton( Book )

17 editions published between 1984 and 2010 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As late as 1976, George Roy Hill was the first and only director to have two all-time top ten box office hits: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Sting (both starring Robert Redford and Paul Newman). A filmmaker with backgrounds in music, drama and television, Hill proved to be a popular storyteller. His films are tied to important American themes and reflect an ironic, bittersweet vision of life." "The book begins with a discussion of the way Hill's films often make their most important statements on the subtextual level. The stories entertain, but the subtext is often disturbing, contradictory, unresolved. Hill felt that all of his major characters "create an environment, a fantasy, an illusion, and then go on to make it happen.""
