3 Screenplays Ready for a Producer
Panoply Publications, 2006 - Performing Arts - 332 pages
"3 Screenplays Ready For A Producer" is a unique storytelling device that allows the reader to read a typical screenplay and still be entertained by a compelling story. Or, three stories in this case. The first entry, "Finkelstein," is a laugh-a-minute "pre-quel" to the ever popular Frankenstein story. It tells of the rivalry between Dr. Victor Frankenstein and his first cousin, Dr. Herbert Finkelstein. It has a raft of lively characters that maintain a non-stop pace throughout. "Your Face Or Mine" is a new version of the familiar "ringer" theme. A man's humdrum life is turned topsy-turvy when he discovers a millionaire who looks exactly like he does. Taking the millionaire's place is not as difficult as is solving the many unexpected twists and turns that he faces in his new life. "Some Assembly Required" is a farcical comedy that deals with the problems facing a group of the nation's armament makers when government budget cuts force them to conduct their war games with model planes and guns. A "Dr. Strangelove" aura pervades the story which is filled with a raft of off-the-wall characters. This book is delightfully good reading whether you're a film producer looking for a new project or just someone looking for some good reading.
