|Summary:||Until recently, the role of the screenwriter has been somewhat diminished by considerations of the part played by the director in cinema. Now a fresh view is being given the writer as shown in this important collection of articles, interviews, and documents. In considerations of such early writers as Anita Loos, who first began writing for the films in the golden years of the silents, through such modern craftsmen as Dalton Trumbo, Eleanor Perry, and Ring Lardner, Jr., comes a new evaluation of the prime force in filmmaking. This edition includes a symposium of screenwriters on their art as well as fifty filmographies of the best known writers in the American cinema.--Cover.
