Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a well-produced and very interesting study of a key film in American cinema. As well as the screenplay, there is a valuable selection of stills, including some from the 1953 remake and some production photos. It also includes the story on which THE JAZZ SINGER play and film was based plus a breakdown of the music featured throughout the film. This particular series is usually nicely produced and informative and it is good to have studies of this kind made available. The text is not too 'academic' so is very accessible to the reader who is not accustomed to the more 'highbrow' style of film writing which has become more prevalent since the 1960s. If this makes me sound like a William K Everson fan (though I own books by the late Andrew Sarris, Molly Haskell and others) then I plead guilty!
