Amadeus: Music on Film Series
(Limelight). Milos Forman's film Amadeus was a big hit with critics and audiences alike, an unlikely feat for a film about the clash of two rival composers Antonio Salieri and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. In this first book ever written about the making of the classic movie, Ray Morton traces the story of Amadeus from its origins as an acclaimed Peter Shaffer play through its transformation into a dazzling cinematic experience.
