1 Anobile, Richard J. ; Rohauer, Raymond (Introduction by) The Best of Buster; the Classic Comedy Scenes Direct from the Films of Buster Keaton
0517528010 / 9780517528013; Many film historians consider Buster Keaton the most masterful of all the silent screen actors. The editor agrees and in this volume he shows us why and helps us understand not only Keaton's genius but the worldwide popularity of his films today. He uses a technique of the frame-by-frame blow-up, reproducing some of the funniest and most popular scenes in movies such as Go West, Seven Chances, The General, The Goat, Sherlock Jr. , and The Navigator. With over 1, 000 photos, Keaton depicts man against the world he has created for himself. The binding is white cloth with blue lettering and a blue Keaton wearing a hat. The jacket has a horizontal fold in it and two 1" tears at the top, which have been repaired.; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall

A Raisin in the Sun: the Unfilmed Original Screenplay, Hansberry, Lorraine
3 Hansberry, Lorraine A Raisin in the Sun: the Unfilmed Original Screenplay
0452267765 / 9780452267763; The 1961 film version of a Raisin in the Sun, with a screenplay by the author, won an award at the Cannes Film Festival, even though one-third of the actual screenplay Hansberry had written was cut out. The film did essentially bring Hansberry's extraordinary play to the screen, but it failed to fulfill her cinematic vision. Now, with this landmark edition of Hansberry's original script for the movie that audiences never viewed, readers have at hand an epic, eloquent work capturing not only the life and dreams of a black family, but Chicago - and society - that surround and shape them. This volume includes an introduction by Margaret B. Wilkerson, and commentary by Spike Lee. The binding is a bit worn on the right front edge. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall

4 McGovern, Jimmy Liam: a Screenplay
1901680541 / 9781901680546; Liam is growing up in Liverpool in the 1930s, the youngest of three children. While he is still at school, trying to rid his seven-year-old head of the wicked thoughts that stand between him and the salvation of his immortal soul, hard times hit Liverpool Docks and Liam's father loses his job. Liam watches as his father, a proud and responsible working an becomes embittered and determined to find someone to blame. In his frustration he joins the local Fascists and so begins a tragic sequence of events. This is a compelling and powerful screenplay that looks unflinchingly at a family's free-fall into poverty. It is a theme as relevant today as it was in the Depression. 116 pages including filmography. Rubbed on the bottom back near the spine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
