Summary
"A foreword by the late Steve Allen provides a revealing glimpse behind the scenes of how a stage play is adapted to the big screen, from an actor and writer's point of view. More than 300 entries are classified into three sections: Dramatic Adaptations, Musical Adaptations, and Shakespearean Adaptations. Each entry discusses both the play and the film in detail, highlighting the changes made from stage to screen, the actors and actresses, the playwrights and screenwriters, and critical reception of both the play and the movie; more than 100 photographs and illustrations help capture the excitement."--BOOK JACKET
