Rezensionen
'Steven Price has done a terrific job at looking at how the screenplay developed. No, it's not another collection of funny stories about drunken screenwriters,but something more revealing: the ways not only the Americans developed useful formats (yes, there have always been more than one), but how the French, Russians and the Italians dealt with the same problems. ... And Price brings us up to date with screenplays for the digital age. This is a great addition to the research being done on screenwriting.' - Tom Stempel, author of FrameWork: A History of Screenwriting in the American Film
