(n.p.): Communication Arts Books / Hastings House. Very Good+. (c.1986). 3rd printing. Softcover. [nice clean book, light exterior wear only, short diagonal creasing at top corner of rear cover]. Trade PB (B&W photos, drawings, facsimiles) Pretty much the Bible for script supervision in Hollywood, this "profusely illustrated, clearly written manual offers the basic tools and concepts necessary to perform the job of script supervisor. It will help beginners develop their own working styles and will assist established professionals in refining their art. The concepts are compiled from the authors' own extensive experience in the film business plus personal experiences of other professionals." The primary author's credentials were impeccable, since she had worked with her husband, cult director Edgar G. Ulmer, on all his films beginning with THE BLACK CAT in 1934, and continued working for many years after his career ended. Interspersed throughout the text are interviews with: production managers Morris Abrams and Richard Hashimoto; directors Peter Bogdanovich and Leslie Martinson; editor Ralph Schoenfeld; and script supervisor representative Thelma Preece. (Of interest is the fact that all the photographic illustrations in the book -- not that there are that many of them -- are scenes from Edgar Ulmer's films.) . (Inventory #: 22194)
