It's a Print!: Detective Fiction from Page to Screen
William Reynolds, Elizabeth Ann Trembley
Bowling Green State University Popular Press, 1994 - Performing Arts - 235 pages
The mechanistic age of the twentieth century has required a mechanized medium for expression: the production of filmdependent from the start on machines such as cameras, projectors, lights, and now more heavily reliant on computers, sensitive films, miniaturization, and sophisticated sound recording devices - has flowered in this century not only as a means of popular entertainment, but as a critically acclaimed art form. These essays highlight true cinematic adaptations as completely different products from films based loosely on the gimmick or plot or character of a certain fiction.
